Ian McRoberts

Forest Play Lead Teacher

Ian, a true wild spirit at heart, had the privilege of growing up amidst the rugged beauty of the Canadian Rockies, in the towns of Lake Louise and Banff, Alberta. When he wasn't immersed in the woods, he was deeply involved with Precipice Theatre Society, an environmental education theatre company. Here, he not only performed and toured but also shared his knowledge as a teacher. The company was dedicated to creating engaging shows centered around environmental stewardship and justice.

Ian's journey continued as he transitioned into teaching theatre and improv to younger children. Later, he joined Parks Canada as a heritage interpreter, where he crafted educational programs that reached thousands of students and tourists across various age groups throughout the Canadian Rockies. Following the completion of his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Performance in Toronto, Ian made his way to Montreal in 2008.

In the heart of Montreal, Ian delved into teaching English as a Second Language, eventually leading him to his current role as an educational consultant with Oxford University Press, a position he has held for the past 11 years. An avid lover of the outdoors, Ian finds joy in skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, camping, and embarking on explorations. Continuously refining his wilderness skills, he plans to pursue further studies in outdoor education in the years to come.

Beyond his professional pursuits, Ian is deeply committed to community service. He volunteers his time and serves on the board of the Hudson Heartbeet Community Farm and Hudson Food Collective. With boundless enthusiasm, Ian wholeheartedly welcomes the chance to become an integral part of the Hudson Forest Play community. We are absolutely thrilled for his new role as Forest Play Leader, and look forward to the positive impact he will undoubtedly have on our team and the children we serve.
