Dale Normandeau

A Bit of Info

My name is Dale Normandeau. Currently, I teach music at Crocus Plains High School and at Brandon University, as a sessional jazz guitar instructor. I have been teaching for 13 years. I am originally from Winnipeg, but, I have resided in Brandon for nearly 19 years. Brandon is a great place to work and raise a family, although, its’ only fault lies in the fact it does not have an international airport.
I am currently enjoying, the study and the learning related to varying perspectives in education; specifically, I am enjoying viewing these trends through the lenses of administration. I always look forward to meeting new people and learning from their experiences.
I enjoy making music, wake-surfing, learning languages, and spending time with my family.
