Hello! My name is Shawn Lawrence and I live in Calgary, Alberta. I am happily married and I have a 12-year-old son in junior high and 3-year-old black lab named Blue. While we have been in Calgary for over a decade, I still hold true to my Oilers, whereas other members of my family have opted to take allegiance with lesser teams.

I am a graduate of the University of Alberta with two bachelor degrees. I have a Bachelor of Science with a specialization in genetics as well as a Bachelor of Education in which I majored in biological sciences and minored in mathematics. I have taught junior and senior high science and math for the past fifteen years, mainly in the private system in Calgary. The focus of my most recent years as a teacher has been mainly in the subject of chemistry.

Outside of my professional career, most of my interests are sports related. I am an avid golfer and I love the game of basketball as well (although my age is allowing me to do less and less of the latter these days). I also enjoy playing racquet sports such as tennis, badminton, and table tennis with my family and friends.   My favorite activities also include hiking, mountain biking, skiing, and entering extreme obstacle races such as “The Spartan Race”. Some of my most cherished moments are being a proud dad in the stands at my son’s hockey and volleyball games.

I am definitely excited about the opportunity to teach and connect with math students in the on-line environment. While not completely new to e-learning, I know that I have a lot to learn and absorb as a new staff member at Sunchild. I am definitely looking forward to taking on this new challenge and journey in my life.
