Hi, I'm Jim and I'm the Assistant Headmaster at Santa Barbara Middle School, focusing on experiential education, human geography, and conflict resolution. In addition to our SBMS trips, I also lead Awareness Journeys for students throughout the world each year with my company, Educational Safaris LLC. Training refugees in Thailand and founding Dunn Middle School are only a part of my 29 years experience in Education Administration and Instruction.

I also serve on the Leadership Council of the Association for Experiential Education

(AEE) as the chair of the Schools and Colleges section, as well as working with AEE's accreditation committee.

I founded Educational Safaris LLC in 1982 when I journeyed with five middle school students to Kenya, East Africa, where my wife Robin and I had previously served as Peace Corps volunteers. Since that time I've developed and led programs with young people on five continents, taking students around the world, across America, and deep into their own cultural backyards.
