He has a passion for teaching and for working with teens and both are focuses of his academic research. Along with his ongoing work running a mentorship support program, Kingsley has also authored several textbooks and constructed educational programs used by schools across Canada.
With a broad academic background, Kingsley completed a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Geography. This led to work in the area of computerized mapping and analysis using geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing resulting in two additional degrees in the area (including a MES from the University of Waterloo). This work in geotechnology has afforded many opportunities to collaborate widely with teachers. His doctoral degree is in Canadian Studies.
Kingsley is a teacher in every sense of the word. Currently, he works as an administrator with Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board putting into practice his knowledge of education, mentoring and resilience. Through his academic work, he hopes to better understand the resilience and mental health of Canadian teens (with a focus on rural teens).
