Creates lessons that are both interesting and appealing to students.
Helps students succeed in areas of learning beyond the curriculum.
Mr. Negrave's teaching practices include a blend of humour, the ability to talk with students at their level, and the ability to maintain high energy levels in both himself and students. He adapts to any situation. For example, when a new chemistry lab encountered construction delays, he chose labs that could safely be done in a classroom.
He has energized students by organizing an Easter egg treasure hunt, complete with clues that are hidden throughout the school and incorporate mathematical formulas to scramble locker numbers, lock combinations, etc.
He developed a drama program and has written and directed many musical productions complete with music, song and dance. Some productions involve people from various local communities, including elementary students, high school students and adults.
He also organized a soccer program - Valley Storm - and not only coaches the team, but also arranges transportation, accommodation and fund-raising events for matches in the U.S. and Europe.
