I've lived in Waterloo Region my entire life, starting school at Winston Churchill, then going to MacGregor and WCI, topped off with a victory lap at KCI. Then I was on to WLU and Western for an undergrad in philosophy, MA in Religion and Culture, and teacher's college focusing on art and history. I haven't always loved school, but I've always loved learning.
I'm a newly retired teacher up for a new challenge. I taught civics, social sciences, and philosophy at KCI from 1991 to 2022 where I organized board-wide conferences on gender equity and on race relations, ran a film festival for student films, and focused on several environmental efforts like the OneEarth club, Envirothon and EcoSchools competitions, and a yearly Earthfest music festival.
I'm great at making very complex concepts clear and easy to understand, which is useful for the job of a trustee. I review and critique books, documentaries, and lectures, creating my own student resources here.
I'm an avid cyclist and might have waved at you on the Bamburg Loop! I live in Waterloo with my three kids and many pets, where I've recently added to the cacophony by taking up the ukulele.
