In addition to being a classroom teacher, Ted has also been a department head, an administrative assistant, and a technology consultant. He is currently the Coordinator of The Digital Art Academy for the Maple Ridge School District in Vancouver, B.C. Ted has also taught at the post-secondary level where he taught computer networking, graphic design, and desktop publishing for Okanagan University.
