I am very happy and grateful to be teaching the Grade 7/8 class at RLN. Originally from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, I have worked many great jobs across the country that have allowed me to explore while developing a passion for travelling and the outdoors. I spent 6 years of this time as a Forest Fire Fighter based in Ontario, fighting fires across the country during the summer, and travelling in the winter. After completing my teaching degree I moved to the north with my wife, Kate, to teach Phys Ed, Science and various other courses at Angik School in Paulatuk. We had an amazing couple of years living and teaching in the community, before making the move to Yellowknife where Kate is based for work. We love the north and are very excited to grow our family in such a beautiful community!
