About Me
John Thomson, MBE, M. Ed.

John hails from Glasgow, Scotland. His wife, Sarah has a Masters Degree in Asian Art History and speaks seven languages. He was awarded an MBE by HM Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace in 1984. The Citation was for ‘Services to Anglo/German Relations’. When Queen Elizabeth presented John with the Order, his response to her was apparently too lengthy and she gently pushed him in the chest. He was, in effect, royally touched. John traveled to 30 countries in his 26 years in the Army and served as the British Exchange Officer to Canada, 1987-1989. He has been the Dean of Academics at three colleges in the USA and presently lives in Cape Coral, Florida.
