It’s Back to School Week at the BCMA and we’re sharing ideas, tips, and resources for museums as they think about how to continue engaging with schools and teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic. In today’s podcast episode, we’re joined by Tom Searby.

Tom majored in History and English at Wilfrid Laurier University and completed a Bachelor of Education at Nipissing University. He has taught grades 8-12 in Ontario and British Columbia and has also worked as a museum educational programmer at Doon Heritage Village in Waterloo, Ontario. He currently resides in Smithers and teaches Food Studies, woodshop, and senior social studies at Houston Secondary School in Houston BC.

Today Tom will be helping to give a teacher’s perspective on how museums can support schools during the most unpredictable back-to-school season in our lifetimes.
