October Learner of the Month – Martin P.

Let me tell you about Martin P. He is a learner at the M’Chigeeng Adult and Continuing Education Program  He’s also a pretty mysterious guy.  I’m always hugely curious when I meet learners, and I usually throw about 100 questions at them.  I did the same to Martin.  I asked him what he likes to…
