He joined Wolf Creek Public Schools after previously teaching English Language Arts at the junior high and high school level in Wabasca, Alberta and Incheon, South Korea.

École Lacombe Junior High School began using the CRM software as a vehicle for organizing teacher discussions three years ago when James was the school's Inclusion Coach. Now, the collaborative response model is firmly embedded within the school's culture with CRM discussions framing obstacles to student learning and identifying appropriate adaptations, accommodations, and interventions.
