Dennis Searle

Dennis Searle (Ph.D. University of London) began his career teaching high school English in Manitoba, Canada, and most recently was on the faculty of education at York University. His research and writing has been in the role of talk in the classroom and in teaching writing. He lives the life of a teacher vicariously through his wife, also an English teacher, and has watched their two children - one a speller, the other not - work their way through the school system. As a speller, Dennis rates himself as “better than my father, but not as good as my mother.”
