Vice President / Occupational Therapist / Author of The Well Teacher

Wade is the vice president of Humanworks, co-founder of Humanworks Press, and author of The Well Teacher. Wade is an occupational therapist and Certified Disability Management Professional who has worked with teachers and educators over 20 years to help them minimize barriers and remain working in the classroom. He has provided many years of clinical support to Humanworks consultants, and continues to work with teachers throughout BC as part of the BCTF Health and Wellness Program, and The Well Teacher Groups.

Wade’s passion and commitment to the well-being of teachers compelled him to write The Well Teacher, a resource guide that empowers teachers to take greater control of their own wellness. He believes that with the information found in his book, teachers will have a better understanding of their own wellness, ultimately enabling them to thrive in the classroom. Wade leads the development of specialized products and services related to The Well Teacher, and his goal is to reach as many teachers as possible to help them remain well in their classrooms.
