About Mr. D

I was trained as a teacher in Africa. The English system of education mandated that if I were handed a class to teach, as long as I understood the content to be taught, I should be able to use good principles and practices in delivering an exciting, valuable and challenging lesson. I love teaching and leading students, young or old. Watching the light go on as a Servant Leader says, “Oh, I get it!”, or seeing a real life-change in one of them is still one of my favorite experiences.
