How I love new warm mittens for the winter! And the wonderful locals that make them too! (as there is no way that I would be able to). They are warm, and super soft, and are just large enough that I can fit a thin pair of stretchy gloves underneath for those recess duty days where I might need "fingers".
After spending six years living and teaching in the Canadian Arctic (Nunavut and Yukon), I returned to the Maritimes to work at my Alma Mater, The University of New Brunswick, as the Media Lab Supervisor with the Centre for Enhanced Teaching and Learning. At the Media Lab I help faculty and students learn how to use instructional and media technology in their classes and projects.
