Biography

I am originally from Miramich New Brunswick, and moved to Sexsmith in 2012 in order to be closer to family along with my Wife Vicky and my young son Achilles.  My journey as an educator has led me from one Canadian coast to the other, around the world and back again. Altogether, teaching has been my focus for well over a decade. The majority of this teaching experience has been as a high school science teacher, though I have also invested significant time as a drama teacher, math teacher and multimedia specialist.  This year I will be teaching Drama 10/20/30, Science 10, Chemistry 20 & 30, Physics 20 and Biology 20 & 30.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of New Brunswick. I also earned my Bachelor of Education from UNB with a triple Major in Biology, Chemistry and English, as well as a minor in Mathematics. I received My Master's degree in Teaching and Learning from the University of British Columbia.  My Master’s thesis was on Brain Development & Neurology and what this can do to inform Educational Practice.

Teaching is on most days a joy.  I like my classroom to be a place where students laugh and enjoy themselves as well as a place where they learn not only course content, but how to think critically.

Cheers
