Seeking the excellence in all his students, with passion and compassion.
Gary has over 30 years’ experience teaching students of all ages, abilities and varying needs. He completed part of his education overseas, where he earned the top graduating mark in his degree program. He then completed his post-degree education right here on the Island and took up a position at SMUS.
“My teaching philosophy matches the school’s,” Gary says, “because I truly believe in it—it guides my professional life.”
He is also very interested in coaching sports for children who have special needs and has written a book on the topic named Different Speeds and Different Needs: Teaching Sports to Every Child.
“My thoughts about physical education and its benefits for people with differences have developed as I have researched therapies and interventions to help my own children.”
He was an international level middle distance runner and has published two books about Track: Getting Started in Track and Field Athletics, which introduces the history, rules, techniques and competition strategies of each event; and Sports Psychology for Runners.
