Winston Blakey

Winston says he was attracted to teaching by the zaniness and energy that kids bring to the a classroom, and he also wanted to support and encourage future generations of zany, energetic learners.

The teacher at Sargent Park has been with the Division 20 years and has been involved with the WTA Executive for about eight years, where he’s been most passionate about the issue of member workload.

In high school Winston says he was a sporty, busy, disorganized and caring person. He also found inspiration to teach in a pool as a teenager giving swimming lessons.
