Hello/Bonjour

My name is Will.

I am the lead learner in an elementary school and a TED Ed Innovative Educator.

My job is more like an all consuming passion. I like to disrupt traditional learning mindsets that are built around teach, test, and repeat models. I prefer helping learners ask, discover, and understand why and how over who, what, when and where?

I believe that social and cultural literacy are as important as being literate in Language and Math.

Education has provided amazing opportunities to engage others, and transform lives in the global classroom. It has taken me across North America, and to the seldom visited, yet beautiful country of North Korea (DPRK)...so far.
