Mr. Thomson Teacher










You might want to know ...........

I have a wife and two little boys. Benjamin is 4.5 years old and Frederick is just 1.5 years old. The subjects I would usually teach are History and Geography, but I will also be teaching ESL and senior-level Sociology this year. Before becoming a teacher, I did many other things; I spent 3 years in housing construction, I have managed the local branch for a lawn care company, I worked in Financial Services and spent a year doing all kinds of extreme sports. During this year I snowboarded in the French Alps andhiked across Scotland.
When I'm not at school I enjoy spending a lot of time with my family, hiking and camping. I also love watching movies.

A message to our students .....

Welcome to Canada! I want you to know that I am honoured to be the teacher chosen to tell you the story of our country – whether it is from the beginnings of Canada or just the last 100 years. I hope that your experiences in my class at SuOn International Academy are fun and that they help to better prepare you for your future; I hope it prepares you for higher academics, work or just life in general. Remember that you are the most important people in my class and your understanding is myultimate goal.

"The problem of self-identity is not just a problem for the young. It is a problem all the time. Perhaps THE problem. It should haunt old age, and when it no longer does it should tell you that you are dead."- Norman Mclean

A pet peeve

I don't like bullies. No one is better than anyone else, and people who think that they are need to be reminded that they aren't.
