Piotr Derus

Science Teacher

I was born in Poland. My family moved to Toronto when I was 6. I went to a high school specializing in the arts. Then I did a BSc in Physics and Astronomy at York University. In my third year I decided to keep with family tradition and go into education. That makes me a 3rd generation teacher, and the first male.  I love Physics because I believe that it brings us closest to truth, and there is never anything more important than the truth. I also love Astronomy because it allows me to study all creation.

After I finished my studies at York I decided to fly to Krakow and take a picture in the senate chamber of Collegium Maius at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, where Nicolus Copernicus was a student.  In 2010 I started my teacher training and attended D'Youville College in Buffalo New York.. I graduated with a MS in Adolescent Education.

I have taught in London and at the Emirates International School in Dubai, and now I find myself back home. I'm looking forward to my time at The British School, Warsaw.
