I have been a teacher in the Prince George School District since 1995 and specialize in teaching Outdoor Recreation, PE and Science, and have also taught a few Art courses along the way .
My passions are focused on outdoor activities and the exploration of wilderness spaces. I enjoy many recreational pursuits, but my great loves are Mt biking, skiing (all forms) and canoeing.
Introducing kids to new ways of discovering and playing in the outdoors is my primary focus in life. I have been coordinating outdoor programs and teaching adventure pursuits for over 35 years; recreation director in cancer camps, Sport and Rec program coordinator for summer camps in Australia, recreation instructor for teens running kids summer camps both in Australia and Prince George’s Dept. of Leisure Services, program coordinator for Carney Hill Neighborhood center and more recently developing outdoor recreation courses for Gr’s 6-12 in SD57.
I’m looking forward to directing the Mt Bike summer camps at Caledonia Nordic Center, guiding camp leaders as they explore not only Mt biking coaching opportunities with the kids, but also introducing their young charges to the wonders of the outdoors.
