Frank Peters came to Canada as a teacher. He initially taught in northern Alberta in Fort Chipewyan and later served as a principal with Fort McMurray Catholic Schools. A faculty member at the University of Alberta for over three decades, he served in such roles as associate dean in the Faculty of Education and associate chair and graduate coordinator in the Department of Educational Policy Studies until retiring in 2014. His major areas of expertise relate to educational governance and education and law. He has also taught courses in both the theory and practice of educational leadership and educational change. For almost twenty years he coordinated a required course he co-developed in the bachelor of education degree program dealing with ethics and law in education. He has been privileged to supervise about twenty-five doctoral students. Among his ongoing interests are the challenges teachers will face in dealing with increasingly diverse classrooms in a context of limited resources and greater demands for “tangible” results.
