Who is John Tyler?

I am currently Principal at CBIS which is BC Certified Offshore program delivering BC curriculum located in the Seoul, Korea  I believe in creating opportunities where everyone achieves success.  When I think of learning I think of student centred.  As an adult in a building full of adolescents I think it is important to portray a sense of modesty that reveals that we all continue to learn throughout our lives.

Personally, I am someone who does not commit to things lightly.  Once I begin something I find myself working tirelessly to make sure I complete what I started to the best of my ability.  This website is an example, I told someone a few years ago that this was something I wanted to accomplish and although this was only one person, I have felt the need to follow through with what I had said.
Hobbies I toil with when away from my place of work?   I try to remain active, in the fall and winter it is hockey – a game I have played since I was 3 and although my game has diminished with age, my passion is as great as ever.  In the spring and summer you may find me on a golf course or out for a run.  When I am not participating in activities you will likely find me spending time with my family.

I perceive learning as an ongoing process.  When something is learned it is not a single dot, or blip, on  a radar but a process that has evolved over time.  I feel I am always learning, in every interaction with a student, teacher, parent or community member I try to reflect on that discussion to learn for the future.  As an administrator I model this to encourage members of my school community to take their life experiences and turn them into learning experiences that are personal and relevant in their lives.
