I started my career in education in 1975. After graduating from the University of Calgary, my wife, Terry , and I moved to Drumheller to begin my teaching career as a high school Social Studies teacher. In 1980, our family moved to Brooks, where I spent 32 years at Brooks Composite High School. While there I was a Teacher, Guidance Counsellor and even a short time as a Vice-Principal. Also, while in Brooks, my youngest child, Stefanie, was born, completing our family. The two older children, Janessa and Nathan were born in Drumheller. All three children were raised and educated in Brooks. Over my career, I served in many capacities with the ATA Local. In 2012 I retired from Grasslands School Division. Subsequently, I took employment at Brooks Campus of Medicine Hat College, working as an Advisor, Tutor and Exam Proctor. I am now honoured to be serving as a Trustee of Grasslands School Division. I hope to serve the community well.
