Before joining AVS, Mike worked as a STEM Makerspace teacher for 11 years at Abby Middle.  Previous to that he taught English to medical students in a Taiwanese University, and can hack his way through a Mandarin conversation with a 6 year old .  Mike has schooling in architecture and drafting, so it was a natural fit as Provincial Spaghetti Bridge Tech' Chair for Skills Canada, and Science Fair coordinator at Abby Middle (where 4 students went to nationals!).  Mike is an over-the-hill athlete with a particular passion for basketball- and he enjoyed coaching many successful Abby teams.  His work in graphic design, and recent Master of Education specialization in 21st Century technology and teaching, led him to the world of virtual education.  He is a big believer that brick-and-mortar schooling is not for everyone, and he's proud to be a part of SD34's diverse, individualized services for all students.
