Mark has multiple roles for the BCTF, including serving on the BCTF’s provincial TTOC Advisory Committee, and representing the BCTF on both the board of the Teacher Qualification Service and the BC Ministry of Education’s Inclusive Education Resource Development Team. He is also highly involved in his local teachers’ association in Greater Victoria, where he serves as the TTOC & New Teacher Committee Chair, and as a Staff Representative at his school. In his exiguous spare time, Mark likes to explore Victoria’s many parks, peruse used bookstores for esoteric texts, see local theatre, and write third-person essays about himself.
