Mr. Stewart Whitney grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His passion, working with children and youth of all ages was confirmed when he was employed with HRM Recreation during the summer of 2001-2011. He attended Saint Mary’s University where he completed his Bachelor of Arts degree. He then pursued further studies at the University of Maine at Fort Kent, where he graduated with his education degree in 2010. Luckily enough, Stew completed his practice teaching portion of his education degree here at Bedford Academy under the guidance of Mr. Bell and Mr. Grant. During the 2010-2011 academic year Stew was a substitute teacher in the public school system in Halifax. In September of 2011, Stew happily joined the Bedford Academy staff as the grade 8 homeroom teacher, while teaching grades 4 to 8. Stew has helped coach Bronco basketball since joining the staff, coaching all levels from Junior Mini Boys to Midget Girls. Outside of teaching, his personal interests are: basketball, golf, snowboarding, reading, and spending time at his cottage with his family and friends.
