About Peter

After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English from Carleton University in 1990, Peter entered the field of child-care education. He has completed a Master of Arts degree (TESOL) through Columbia University Teachers College, and his current research has as its focus the benefits of respecting mother tongue (L1) in L2 learning environments. His thesis paper on “Language Revitalization” touches on the importance of respecting all languages regardless of their perceived importance in a “globalized” world. His love for teaching young learners keeps him motivated in his writing and the “Cole the Mole” stories have been dedicated to his two-year old daughter and his supportive wife.
