Will Lowry

Education

A mature student, married with six children, Will Lowry returned to uLethbridge for his second degree and to become a teacher.

“I already had a Bachelor of Science majoring in mathematics and was a journeyman carpenter. After working in the trade for a while, I found the part of the job I liked the best was training the new carpenters,” he says. “I went to school because I wanted to combine my math and carpentry background and show kids Career and Technology Studies (CTS) is a valid stream of education.”

Shortly after completing his degree requirements, Will accepted his first teaching position at Coalhurst High School teaching math and science.

Drawing on the trades, he uses his own blueprints to teach math students practical, everyday concepts. For example, an assignment for students to renovate their bedrooms requires calculating square, lineal and cubic footage, as well as volumes of paint, flooring and other materials. “When kids see how something is used every day they’re less reluctant to learn it,” he says.

Looking back at his time at uLethbridge, Will says his PSIII placement helped him the most in preparing to become a teacher.

“In PSIII, I set up and ran my own classroom. I don’t think I would be successful in my current placement without the extra experience PSIII gave me,” he says.
