Darin and his wife, Laurie Parker (Senior Houseparent and Community Service Coordinator) landed at SMUS after almost three years teaching in South Korea. He coordinated the Grade 8 boarding program from 2005-2011 before taking on the Senior Assistant and then Senior Houseparent positions in Timmis House.

“Boarding is a vibrant, colourful, close-knit community that I feel greatly privileged to have a role in,” he says. “For students, boarding is an opportunity to discover what you love and our job is to be as creative and intentional as we can when guiding students through.”

Darin spends his time in the realms of book publishing, videography, public radio and writing. He is also fortunate to travel to fun places a couple of times a year.
