Teaching in diverse multi-ethnic contexts is a primary passion of Rev. Daniel Splet, who has a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Education from the Briercrest Bible Institute. Daniel was employed for many years in religious education, first in Austria, then in California, Canada, and for 12 years in the United Arab Emirates. He came back to Canada to work amongst Chinese in Richmond Hill, Ontario, which included organizing and teaching ESL classes to newcomers to Canada, especially Chinese seniors. He also taught English for a few months in Venezuela. Life’s circumstances and these ESL teaching experiences compelled him to earn his second Masters degree, this time in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at Trinity Western University (TWU). He also took a 15-credit Certificate in Academic Coaching and Facilitation, which landed him a position at TWU as an Academic Facilitator. TWU sent him to New Delhi and Jaipur in India to teach and represent the university there while he also coached TWU students in Public Speaking, Sociology and Philosophy classes in BC. And, prior to coming to McKenzie College, Daniel taught high school English and Social Studies for two years in a Cree Community reservation in northern Manitoba, where he also did a lot of fishing. Now, Daniel feels very fulfilled teaching international students at McKenzie College!
