I have had the good fortune to teach every grade except Kindergarten and grade 11. Currently I am an intermediate teacher teaching core Grade 4 subjects and exciting stuff in Grades 5-7, including multimedia, hands-on science, and special projects. I have also taught ESL internationally and developed products for Successful ESL which have been used in classrooms around the world.
I believe that my vocation as a teacher is to inspire learners. When there is a passion for learning, difficulties and barriers are broken down. That is why activitities such as puppetry, literature, visual arts, and multimedia are so effective.

My wife, kids and I live in Coquitlam, BC. I have fish in my pond and stick bugs in my class. I've always kept an arthropod pet. I love seeing excited kids making and performing with puppets. I enjoy using the motivational ESL storybooks sold on this site.
