I was raised in the Peace River area, in Fairview. I graduated from the U of A in 1979 with a B.Ed. I have taught one year in Clyde, and thirty six years at Westlock Elementary School. I have taught grades three to seven, but mainly grade six. I enjoy getting grade six students ready for junior high school! Outside of school, I enjoy gardening, and spending time with my wife Linda, and our two sons, Kent and Ryan. Teaching has been a rewarding career!
