I’m a high school math teacher at John McGregor Secondary School in the Lambton-Kent District School Board in Ontario Canada. When not teaching my students and spending time with my family I lead workshops and presentations on teaching pedagogy in the math classroom. As an Apple Distinguished Educator and Desmos Fellow I routinely talk about implementing technology and great teaching strategies in my classroom. Lately I’ve been excited about promoting struggle in my students and teaching them about resilience while problem solving. I live in Tilbury Ontario Canada with my wife and three daughters.
