Farewell and Good Luck to Mr Lawrence

Tuesday, May 03, 2016 - By: Gina B, Mackenzie ‘17

We, the Brentwood community, regret to say that faculty member Mr Kevin Lawrence will be leaving his position at the school. After seven years of being part of the Brentwood community, Mr Lawrence will be leaving Mill Bay to go live the big city life in Toronto as the VP of Information Technology at Discovery Air. www.discoveryair.com

In his seven years at Brentwood, Mr Lawrence has left a huge impact on the lives of students, staff, and faculty members. He has taught a variety of classes and has impacted hundreds of students with his engaging teaching. His time at Brentwood has included being the Head of IT, teaching Macro AP classes, physics, marketing, entrepreneurship, software engineering, as well as being Head of the Business department and coaching hockey.

Anyone who has been part of one of Mr Lawrence classes knows about his memorable teaching style has encouraged students to get hands on and take charge of their learning through experiential discovery. Not only will Mr Lawrence’s past students remember the course material, but they will remember the amazing relationship they developed with him as a teacher. From his amazing stories about igloos in the Arctic to his excellent fashion advice, Mr Lawrence made every class engaging and fun. His famous “Question of the Day” helped classes build relationships with each other and his amazing life advice was always taken at great value. 

His time at Brentwood left him with many new relationships with great people, and the opportunity to educate the next generation of young minds. He loved every aspect of Brentwood, but it is time to move on to be closer to his children going to school in Ontario as well as to “read great books and drink excellent coffee.” 

Everyone at the school will miss Mr Lawrence as he impacted everyone he talked to here at Brentwood in some amazing, memorable way. We all wish Mr Lawrence good luck on his next great adventure and hope he has a great time in Toronto. As for Mr Lawrence, he says to Brentwood, “So long, and thanks for all the fish!”
