Bill began his work at NIC as the Ahousaht First Nation Centre instructor over 20 years ago. He took over as instructor of NIC's Tofino and Ucluelet Centres a year later and has continued to be a strong advocate for Aboriginal Education and a defender of in-community programs. Bill is a skilled teacher who has helped many NIC students in courses ranging from Fundamental Adult Basic Education to first-year Mathematics and Biology. Bill's work has made NIC's Ucluelet Centre a vibrant learning community. The Pacific Rim area is Bill's home. He raised his daughters there and has been instrumental in many community projects including the opening and expansion of the Ucluelet Aquarium. When he's not teaching, his creativity is flourishing with music and other artistic expressions. Thank-you for continuing to have an impact on our students lives in Ucluelet and beyond.
