Mr. Bettencourt grew up in Kingston, Ontario and knew from a very young age that helping others learn gave him a sense of purpose and fulfillment. He feels it is his role as an educator to ensure that the student experience in his classroom or residence allows children to develop interests, forge connections and contribute positively to society.
Mr. Bettencourt is inspired by the sense of community at SJK. He feels proud to be a member of such a caring community that supports its members in being their best. He strives to incorporate supportive structure into the SJK Boarding experience every day. Mr. Bettencourt appreciates the unique set-up that SJK Boarding studentshave, learning on a beautiful, rural campus and living in an urban setting in central Waterloo.
