Brian is, currently, a middle school/junior high teacher plying his trade in New Brunswick’s beautiful Kennebacasis Valley. He graduated in 1990 from Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland and has taught in northern Labrador, the Northwest Territories, central Quebec, and Nunavut. His varied experience, over 20 plus years, includes isolated fly-in communities, a juvenile offender facility, and a provincially run community college. Additionally, he has owned and operated businesses that recycled computer printer cartridges, retailed Inuit Art, and he was a franchisee for a restaurant chain. His main areas of instruction are English and social studies and has found frustration over the years with the dearth of material available to help him along with his teaching. His sincere wish is that your find his work of value.
Active, engaged, entertaining, and structured.
