I'm a teacher by trade and a lover of learning. I was born and raised in Toronto, and am still just as smitten with this city as I ever was. But I think could be very happy living almost anywhere. I am delighted by both the familiar and the new.
I'm caring and creative, and I'm conscientious to the point of self-parody (though this is sometimes mitigated by my absent-mindedness and my powers of procrastination).
At times I'm playfully preposterous, and at others, I'm entirely earnest. At still others, I'm a refreshingly zippy blend of the two. I can deadpan pretty convincingly and I love catching people off guard. Call my bluff at your own risk. ;)
An exuberant idealist (though not without my cynical side), I'm a big supporter of such things as restorative justice, transformative education, sustainable development, equity, empowerment, community and helping disadvantaged buzzwords find employment.
