Rethinking how education can engage, inspire and transform has guided Conor’s work as an educational leader. From the mountains and coastline of BC to the jungles of Indonesia, he has been fortunate to pursue and share his passion for outdoor and experiential learning in some of the most inspiring natural classrooms on earth.
In addition to facilitating environmental learning programs at the elementary and secondary level provincially and internationally, Conor has taught Environmental and Outdoor Education courses in UBC’s Faculty of Education since 2004. From 2011 to 2013, Conor served as a Director at the Green School in Bali, Indonesia. This experience reaffirmed his belief in the power of authentic and engaging learning that connects students to the natural world.
He is grateful for the opportunity to continue this work with the committed team at Cheakamus Centre.
Conor lives and plays in North Vancouver with his wife, 2 sons and his dog Ollie, all of whom enjoy exploring the ocean and forest as much as him.
