Resource Coordinator and Teacher
Mark was born and raised in Calgary but decided to leave home in 2001 to attend Canadian Mennonite University. He returns home to Calgary each year and enjoys returning to the mountains to snowboard, hike, camp, and bike (and of course visit his family). Despite the lack of elevation near Winnipeg, he loves calling Manitoba home and finds as many opportunities to get outside with his family and visit the natural beauty Manitoba has to offer. He has a diverse teaching career having taught all grades k - 12 as well as adults; taught in Germany, South Korea, and Manitoba; and worked in the classroom, student services, and administration. When not at Westgate, Mark is most likely on a bike, camping, or gardening. Mark and his partner, Vanessa, attend Charleswood Mennonite Church with their children, Emma and Heidi.
