I’m happy you found me out in The Blue Nowhere Bad book joke. My name is Nick Kruks and I am a first year UVic Elementary PDP student. I have been a student and employee at the University of Victoria prior to my new educational voyage, and love the schools tight nit community.
I have been a coach for Victoria Minor Hockey and Layritz Minor Baseball, both of which have inspired me to continue my love of educating children. There is something to say about job satisfaction and I can’t think of anything more satisfying than helping a child succeed.
Being a father of two boys, I have learned that patience is paramount when dealing with younger children. Lots of patience. Lots…but the payoff is immeasurable. When you see the wheels turning in their minds and see it in their eyes the moment it all clicks into place is breathtaking.
I hope to help others achieve those moments throughout my teaching journey.
