I am excited to be teaching grade 8 and having an Elementary PE specialist role this year at NPCS. I grew up in Neerlandia and attended NPCS from Kindergarten to Grade 10. After I completed high school I went off to play baseball and pursue a teaching career in lovely Nanaimo, BC. My wife, Carmen, and I have very fond memories of our years on Vancouver Island but have always known we wanted to settle down right here in Neerlandia. After graduating from Vancouver Island University with a Bachelor of Education and Physical Education Diploma we moved back to our home province of Alberta. I taught Gr. 5 at NPCS now for a few years and loved it! I did spend 7 years teaching at Barrhead Elementary School in a variety of roles and grade levels, including being the Physical Education Specialist previously. My passion for Education is in building relationships with the students, parents, teachers, and community. I love being part of some of the extra curricular activities that NPCS has to offer.
We have 3 children. Theo, Etta, and Sylvie who we love spending as much time with as we can. I am excited to continue the culture of a caring, safe, athletic, and Christian education the students receive here at NPCS.
