Vice Principal

Hello McTavish students and families!

My name is Mr. Baseley and I am one of three Vice Principals here at École McTavish Public High School. 

I was born in Tanzania, and lived in England as well as Barbados before arriving in Canada with my family when I was six. As a proud, naturalized Canadian I still remember our actual date of arrival: August 17th, 1982 - a very long time ago!  In 1999 I completed my Bachelor of Arts (History) degree at the University of Winnipeg, before spending the next 7 years abroad: in the United States and Japan. After returning to Canada, I studied at the University of Toronto, where I earned a Bachelor of Education degree in 2007. More recently, I earned a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Alberta in 2016. Aside from my obvious interest in traveling and cultural exchange, I also love to play music, discuss history or politics, and exercise at the gym.

I am excited to join the Marauder family, after serving as Summer School Principal as well as Vice Principal at both Walter & Gladys Hill Elementary and Fort McMurray Christian Schools. Should you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me either via email or phone. I look forward to meeting you, and I'm sure that 2021-2022 is going to be fantastic!    

Cruach Mor!
