About Me Heading

Don Jones

I am a retired shop teacher who likes to dabble with computers. I have done various jobs such as carpentry, drafting, painting, and writing. I was a foster child born in Moncton, New Brunswick. I lived my summers as a youth in the Boston area where I credit the great Ted Williams as being my personal hero. Along the way I managed to qualify for a Master's degree in Educational Administration. In the educational field, I taught school mainly in the grade 7 to grade 12 levels and, at one time or another, I was a department head, a vice-principal, a principal, and a co-ordinator of technology. Formal education and a so-called professional career, however, do not replace the school of everyday hard knocks when it comes to survival in today's world.

I believe computer technology and the internet have provided the world with a solution to bringing nations closer together. My hope is they will develop a sense of kinship through the sharing of ideas and information. In the long run, truth must and will prevail.  If not, we will be living in a "big brother" community where the political game is played to the disadvantage of the common man and woman.

Please browse around and, hopefully, you will find some information on heroes you can use for essays, biographies, or other school projects. You might even find someone who can be your own role model.
