Myron Dueck

Over the past 22 years, Myron has gained experience in both Canada and New Zealand in subjects ranging from grades 4 to 12. Beginning in 2006, Myron developed a number of assessments and grading systems with his classes in which students have greater opportunity to show what they understand, adapt to the feedback they receive and play a significant role in the reporting of that learning. Myron has been a part of district groups, school committees and governmental bodies that have further broadened his access to innovative steps taken by others. Myron has shared his stories, tools and first-hand experiences with public, charter and international school educators from around the world. In recent years Myron’s presentations have diverged to include human nature, global trends and social realities. Myron has twice been published in EL Magazine.
