This year, I am pleased to be the Canadian Principal in the Sino-Canadian Program at Nanchang No. 2 High School. In 2007, I was working as a Nova Scotia Government official and was actually involved in the opening ceremony of this Sino-Canadian Program. My education career has spanned 35 years and I have experience as a teacher, principal, curriculum consultant, and Regional Education Officer. Professionally I have an educational background that is quite diverse including three Master’s Degrees (Science, Educational Administration, and Counselling), along with a Ph.D. in Education. It will be my pleasure to lead the Canadian teaching staff here inNanchang to enable students in the Sino-Canadian Program to be stimulated to become international life-long learners. My wife Barbara and I hope that we will make a significant contribution Canadian education experience that students will receive here now and in the future.
Courageous leadership means doing the right thing even when you know that others will challenge your decision.
