He began his career as a teacher in a small rural school in Dunstable, Alberta and soon was appointed principal at Meadowview School in the same school district. His career has taken him to northern and southern Alberta, where he worked as a teacher, principal, curriculum manager/supervisor/director and associate superintendent.
