My name is Jesse McLean and I am heading into next year as the Assistant Principal at Greystone Centennial Middle School in Parkland School Division in Spruce Grove, Alberta.
I have some specific areas of education that I am passionate about and tend to focus on in my writing and in the conversations I jump into on Twitter. Those would be Innovation and Creativity in the classroom, Educational Leadership, Education Reform and recently I have been interested in the topic of Alternative Classroom Design.
I helped bring a fabulous project to my school called Innovation Week, and now do my best to help share about the project and assist others in developing their own Innovation Weeks. To do this, I have started #iweekchat on Twitter every second Sunday of the month and I set up a website to support and share about Innovation Weeks all over the globe.
I am also a contributor to the Connected Principals site and related hashtag #cpchat.
I am married to my beautiful wife Anneliese, and we have a one year old daughter, Maggie. I am currently the Head Coach of the Men’s Basketball Team at King’s University in Edmonton, AB, Canada. In what little free time I do have I enjoy golf, movies and music.
