Hi, my name is Bruce Madore and I teach social studies. I graduated from Acadia University in 1987 and spent two years teaching in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, twelve years in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, and have been at Olds High since 2002.
As a child and young adult growing up in Pugwash, Nova Scotia, I developed a love for the salty ocean, baseball, golf, hockey, palaeontology, world politics, gardening, baking, and nature.
As an adult living in Innisfail, Alberta, I fell in love with the prairies, the foothills, the mountains, and especially the Badlands. My wife, Jeanne, and I are the only couple to marry at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller.
Professionally, I have a deep rooted interest in social justice, global development issues, and cultural diversity. My main extracurricular focus has been the OHS Environment Club and our club motto is "We're not big but we're small!" I have had the great pleasure of accompanying students and colleagues on educational trips to Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Cambridge Bay, Vancouver, Tofino, San Francisco, New York, Brussels, London, Bath, Copenhagen, and Beijing.
If you would like a worm composter (complete with worms) give me a call!
