Peter Freeman earned a number of degrees (B.Sc., M.Sc.,B.Ed., and M.Ed.) from the University of Toronto. In order to enjoy an “out-of-doors” life style and pursue his teaching career, he moved first to Kirkland Lake, a small mining town in Northern Ontario where he taught senior biology for five years. Then he brought his family west to the coastal town of Prince Rupert where he taught in the public school system (primarily at Charles Hays Secondary School) til 2007. He has been teaching at Northwest Community Colleges since then. He has a passion for projects and has converted a classroom into film studio and workshop. Working with a variety of equipment, Peter has designed a variety of technology for sensing the environment under water and from the air.
The community, over the years has afforded him the opportunity to travel around the north with students on bikes, skis and canoes. His experiences in the north range from commercial fishing, bear viewing, and hunting to backcountry hiking and camping.
Too old to pursue a lot of his favourite out-of-door activities, Peter, none-the-less, enjoys talking about his adventures with students.
