Key Roles

Teaching in Sylvan Lake has been an incredible blessing.  This is my 21st year teaching back here.  Both of my parents lived and worked here for decades and both have passed on.  My mom was the longest living resident of Sylvan Lake, having lived here for 73 years without ever moving.  This is probably why I will always consider Sylvan Lake to be my home.  I am looking forward to continued learning through the STEPS program where I hope to develop strong relationships with staff as well as all students and their families at CPB.  I have been married to Bonnie for 18 years and together we have 4 children(the oldest three are my Step-Children) and the youngest is in grade 10 this year at HJ Cody.  We also have three lovely grandchildren aged 8, 5 and 3.  Here is to another fabulous year at CPB.
