Peter’s Book Bio
Peter's 20 year career as an educator has allowed him the experience to work thoughout the world as teacher, speaker, lecturer, and consultant for various institutional and educational settings. After completing his first degree at McGill University, he then received his Bachelor of Education from the University of Western Ontario, his Master's Degree in educational administration from the College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College) and his Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Bath in the United Kingdom. During this time, he has been published in many prestigious academic publications around the world. His return to Canada has provided him the opportunity to undertake numerous workshops for different organizations including the Canadian Society for Studies in Education (CSSE), the Ontario Council for Exceptional Children (OCEC). and the internationally recognized Quest Conference for Educators which takes place in Ontario through the York Region District School Board (YRDSB).
His passion for education comes from the belief that education holds the potential to make the world a better place. To achieve this belief, the need to inspire leadership in education is of the utmost importance, and this is the reason for this book. It hopes to instil the same belief and inspiration for education that will lead dedicated educator's through the good times, and carry them through the challenging times.
Peter now lives in the Greater Toronto Area with his loving wife who is herself an educator, and whose patience and understanding is one of the main ingredients that gave rise to this publication. He is surrounded by two dogs and two cats who like each other.
