About Me

I became a teacher by accident in apartheid-era South Africa and taught there for 7 years before resigning when I began to feel like a quisling.  For the past 18 years I’ve been teaching the humanities in secondary schools in Surrey, B.C.  Since 2013, I’ve been presenting experientially focused workshops on how teachers can build and sustain learning environments that are inviting to teens.
