Teachers teaching, teaching and more teaching
King’s-Edgehill teachers are passionate about their teaching and it spills over into other venues where they are asked to share their passion and their knowledge.
King’s-Edgehill teachers are passionate about their teaching and it spills over into other venues where they are asked to share their passion and their knowledge. During the School PD days, teachers like Angie Folker, Alan Dick, DJ DeCoste, Manny Avila, Rev’d David Curry and Assistant Headmaster Academics, Derek Bouwman, have made presentations or led workshops. Outside of KES, Glenn Nightingale has been a guest lecturer in the Adventure Education Programme at Acadia University. Alan Dick is a workshop leader for the Provincial Conference of Social Studies Teachers. Eric Kershaw is a workshop leader for Science Teachers at their Provincial Conference. The Rev lectures on Ethics and Church History at the Acadia Divinity School. He spoke as well at King’s College on the occasion of the 225th celebration of Classics at King’s and Dalhousie. He has also laid out a curriculum on Patristic authors and texts for Theology students at Pusey House, Oxford University. Our intrepid Arts teacher, Sandy Stewart, is a featured IB workshop leader in Canada and the USA, contributing greatly to the IB Art programmes in IB schools.
Teachers are also learners, both learning through teaching and through courses and programmes. A number of our faculty are pursuing advance degrees. Each year, the School sends teachers to IB workshops to enable them to keep on top of the developments in the different subject areas of the IB programme. All of their endeavours contribute to the learning environment in the School and to the benefit of our students.

KES inspires academic, athletic and artistic excellence with a commitment to the traditional community ideals of gentleness and learning, dignity and respect, so that students may discover and cultivate their unique potential, prepare for post-secondary education and develop a life-long enthusiasm for the spiritual and intellectual growth necessary to flourish in the contemporary world.
