I remember taking metalwork as part of the rotation in grade 8 with Mr. Burnes. It so inspired me that I took art metal the next year with him (a course I think he probably invented). I loved it. I learned skills I would never have thought I wanted or needed - like rock tumbling, polishing, silver craft, and even casting! Our class was almost all girls which is a terrific testament to him as a teacher during the era I grew up in! I will always value the skills I build in that class and the time I spent with Mr. Burnes. It really did inspire me personally and professionally.
