Brief Biography

The ability of a child to learn in a school environment is prefaced by the teacher's understanding of how a child learns.

Peter received his MA in Applied Linguistics from York University and an M.ED. in human development from Harvard University. He is presently completing a Ph.D. from York in Applied Linguistics. His background is in teaching, linguistics and developmental psychology. These three areas of training have focused my interests on teacher education and building healthy dynamic school communities. Projects to date include: school based family health centre, promoting parent and staff collaboration and rolling out a reading program across a school board.
