I'm a Canadian who started my teaching career in an inner city school in Brooklyn, NY. After three years in NYC I met my wife and moved to London, England where I taught in a private International Baccalaureate (IB) school. Two years later we moved on to Bangkok, Thailand with our small child in tow where I worked in another IB school. After four years living in Vancouver and working in an independent school there, now I work for New Visions for Public Schools as a Formative Assessment Specialist.
