Looking for some creative inspiration while up in Whistler? The Emerald Pig Theatrical Society will be presenting the play "The Little Years" at the Westin Whistler Hotel on May 11th at 8:30 pm and in Squamish on Friday May 12. The Little Years was written by John Mighton, creator of the Jump Math program and directed by Sharon Malone, a long-time BC teacher.
The Little Years is an opportunity to explore our ideas of time and space, the intersection of art and science, our hopes for the future and the unexpected ways we inspire each other. More information and tickets are available at Eventbrite. Tickets are only $20.00 for conference attendees. For more information go to www.emeraldpig.ca.

Did you know about TeachBC?
TeachBC is an online resource of teaching materials, lessons, and research relevant to the K-12 BC curriculum. The website is public and open to everyone through the generosity of BC public school teachers. Teachers and organizations can share their teaching resources or educational research by registering and uploading their materials or providing links. Anyone can browse and download the resources for classroom or professional use. Browsing is easy. Users can search by subject, grade level, resource type, title, description, language, and more.
In the early stages of resource sharing, they are looking for help to build up the site. Their help page features instructional videos and other useful tools. In the spirit of teachers helping teachers, thank you!
