My name is Jon Wick and I am setting up this blog as part of an educational project during my time at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. I am a certified teacher and have taught over five years in western Montana and overseas. This website will be the vehicle that I share my experiences, and interact with school children and staff all over the United States while at the games. I am very excited about this opportunity not only to attend this amazing event, but give quality, first hand accounts and information while I'm there. I hope this will be benefitial to everyone.
Currently, I have a limited press pass through this project and my work with the travel website www.theexpeditioner.com at the Whistler Media House. This will give me access to all of the press gatherings and equipment in Whistler. I will be traveling with a camera and video camera, documenting my experience so that I can post it all here. I will be posting a minimum of once per day during February 10-18th.
I hope to make this an interactive experience for everyone, so I encourage everyone to email me any questions, comments, or suggestions(especially students!!) so that I can answer those in my daily posts.
