Mr. Bullard grew up in Victoria, attended the Challenge Program at Cedar Hill Junior Secondary and graduated with a Bachelor of Science and M.Sc. in paleontology from the University of Alberta. Rather than pursue a career as a professional paleontologist Mr. Bullard returned home to enroll in the University of Victoria’s Diploma in Secondary Teacher Education. He has been a teacher in Victoria ever since.
Mr. Bullard’s interest in the extraordinary complexity and beauty of organisms, both living and extinct, is his motivation for teaching, and he tries to pass on some of this fascination to his students.
