... a little bit about me.

 I have had a wonderful life and have had the opportunity to do a wide variety of activities with many great people.  Married since 1977, I have two grown children, each doing well in their chosen fields.

After a 38 year career as an educator, I retired from the Edmonton Public School District in June 2013.  I was fortunate to have a wide variety of experiences in a number of different schools. Over my educational career, I had roles as teacher, coach, counsellor, consultant, department head, program coordinator, assistant principal and principal.

I have a great deal of experience, and am very comfortable working with couples, small groups and large audiences.

In addition to being an educator, I have had an active role in a the community.  See below for some of the highlights
