My name is Kerry Handscomb. I started my career in education 17 years ago as a mathematics teacher in Vancouver School District. I have worked in several high schools in Vancouver, as teacher, department head, and administrator. This is my second year as Vice Principal at Vancouver Learning Network. Academically, I have been interested in the nature of mathematical learning, and I have a PhD in mathematics education. In addition, I am interested in distance learning and blended learning. I believe that the online learning offered through VLN is a crucial and valuable service for students and families in Vancouver and beyond.
