My name is Bernard Bloom, and I would like to briefly introduce myself. I started as a Tutor for Athabasca University in 2001. From 1999 to 2005, I also was an instructor in the Writing Program at the University of Alberta's Faculty of Extension. For more than 12 years before that, I taught at institutions in the U.S., in B.C., and in Calgary.

I have covered local, national, and international affairs for both print and broadcast media. More than 40 of my articles have appeared in Canadian, American, and British publications.
