I received my Honours Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Western Ontario in 1973, and followed that with my Bachelor of Law degree, after which I practised law for some years. In 1990 I decided to make a change and obtained my Bachelor of Education degree from Nipissing University, followed by Additional Qualifications in History, FSL, and ESL. I first became affiliated with Nancy Campbell Academy in 1994, when I became one of the original teachers upon the opening of the school. Over the course of the years I have taught many courses at all levels, with my focus on languages, humanities, and social sciences. I “retired” from NCA in 2015 and spent a year at home before returning on a part-time basis to teach elementary English, History, and French.
