John discovered his passion for experiential education as a Peace Corps volunteer in the jungle of Suriname while helping to create a sustainable rice milling business. However, it was his role models, many of whom were teachers and also lifelong counselors at Camp Deerwood, who truly inspired him to pursue a career in education. At school, John strives to help students become the best versions of themselves—academically, socially and emotionally. Outside of school, John enjoys spending time outdoors and with his wife, Kate, and their English bulldog, Olaf.
