I love teaching! Where else can I get paid to warp children’s minds, play games, tell stories, get dressed up, and joke around with them?!
Seriously, I do love teaching. I must as I am entering my 35th year of teaching here in Red Deer Public.
I cannot begin to explain how thrilled I am to be working at a great school. We have an amazingly gifted and compassionate team here and I am excited about the prospect of continuing the terrific work we have started over the last four years on building the culture here at Ecole Barrie Wilson School. I also look forward to meeting and working with the students and their parents over the year, as we strive to maintain Barrie Wilson as the best school in the district!
My wife, Samantha, is also an elementary school teacher in the district. Together we have a creative and chatty young daughter, named Grace. I am excited as she will be in grade one this year, here at EBWS! I also have two grown children, Melissa and Jamie, who are currently productive members of society, and of whom I am also fiercely proud.
Aside from teaching, my passion is golf. I am an avid, if not talented, player. When I am not planning scintillating lessons for my students, or out on the golf course lying about my score, I like to relax on a beach, camp, read, and hang with my family and friends.
