Biography: I joined the College in 1998. I’ve been a form adviser for Year 6 and 7 and taught English and history to both grade levels. I’ve coached soccer, hockey and lacrosse. I’m the U14 hockey coach at the Prep and have led team trips to Norway, Sweden, Italy and Switzerland. I started the U14 lacrosse team in 2001 and coach the varsity team and my sons’ teams outside of UCC. I’m the leader of the Winston McCatty bird trip that enables eight boys to search for winter birds in the islands off Kingston, Ont. every winter. My son Quinn is here and we don’t mind seeing each other in the halls.
