I have been an international educator for 25 years, and for several years prior in my home country of Canada. Even earlier I had careers in Canadian private industry, and military.
Having been a teacher, professional development leader, educationalist presenter, and education consultant in seventeen countries, living or traveling extensively in 27, I bring vast experience, and depth of insight to academic leadership and school administration.
The vast majority of my experience over the past 25 years has been with IBO programmes. I have taught in all three PYP, MYP and DP programmes, helping to design curriculum, develop assessments, and guide thousands of students to strengthen those attributes and values that derive from an IB International education.
The value of an IB education has been proven to me over and over again. Students develop the skills, competencies, attitudes, ethics and values that equip them to thrive in the 21st Century. Students develop teamwork, open-mindedness, compassion, integrity, internationalism, expandable knowledge capacity, critical and creative thinking, as well as dynamic communications skills.
I bring to Global Paradigm an understanding of what our children need most, compassion for the challenges young people face, experience to know how to lead the school forward, and the energy to take us there.
With a great Academic Team of PYP Teachers, I look forward to fulfilling for our students the holistic richness and academic excellence that are the hallmarks of all good IB World Schools.
If you are not yet a part, I urge you to join the Global Paradigm community, and open for your children the wonderful opportunities of an IB World School education at Global Paradigm.
