Respected retired teacher and author available to share his
unique experiences of teaching in North Western Ontario.

Teaching was his first love     – 2nd was writing

 - and found that his earlier occupations provided the inspiration to write his “Don’t Wake The Teacher!” book.

Book him for your groups, organizations, associations and get ready for an unforgettable memorable journey of his experiences teaching at a unique school in Northwestern Ontario (Lake of the Woods) as he relate to you some of the stories and personal accounts of his life and teaching in North-Western Ontario. 

His talks enable audience to have an entertaining,  close encounter with the background he taught in for several years.

”Charming reminiscences about a Kindergarten readers will wish they could have attended.”
Dinah E. W. Gough, Head of Children's Services for Oshawa Public Library

He brings photos and sketches to help you 'be there'  as he relates his unique experiences.
Next best there to 'being there'!

He loves to interact with his audience
- so, questions are welcomed and appreciated ! 

"Don't Wake The Teacher" is based on the author's experience of a unique school that will appeal to educators who will appreciate the special moments and techniques used. The general population will enjoy the many anecdotes and short stories interspersed among the descriptions.

It’s entertaining, vivid, poignant and humorous, with a 'feel-good' sensitivity through a succession of flash-backs, biographical sketches and photos.

         'The book does several things for the reader. It is a how-to book for good teaching. It shows how things have changed in our education system. It makes us laugh. And it leaves us with hope that others involved in education are giving the same dedication to the teaching profession. '
Kim Grove ( Media Release - was with the Globe & Mail)
