Andrew Field

Explore Teacher
Explore Outdoor Educator
Collectively, we have over 30 years of Outdoor Ed experience at Collingwood School. We are passionate about the importance of outdoor and experiential learning. Our particular program focusses on Grades 8 and 9 but we also teach a Leadership 11 class on the side. The Explore department at Collingwood has an ethos of collaboration and teamwork and welcomes opportunities to get together with peers from other schools to share what we know and learn from others as well to make the Outdoor Education better for all.
I am a passionate educator who strives to develop students fully in a fun and engaging way. Mr. Field originally comes from Botswana, Africa, but after traveling the world he calls the West coast of Canada home. He grew up in Victoria, and achieved his HB Outdoor Recreation, BA Geography and BEd from Lakehead University, Ontario. His interest in leadership inspired him to pursue his MA in leadership at Royal Roads University. His passion for the outdoors has taken him too many exciting places. He enjoys teaching students in the Explore program at Collingwood School.
