Bob Snowden is the Head of St. Michaels University School, an independent day and boarding school in Victoria, British Columbia.
Born in Toronto and raised in Mississauga and Oakville, Bob Snowden attended Appleby College and went on to study English and philosophy at the University of Toronto. After earning his degree, Bob returned to Appleby as a French teacher with the intention of staying for only a year before pursuing a law degree. In that first year of teaching, Bob discovered his passion for education and his plans for the law were put aside. For the next ten years, Bob taught English at Appleby, eventually becoming the head of the English department and housemaster.
During the 1980-1981 school year, Bob taught at St. Michaels University School as part of a teaching exchange with SMUS English teacher Grenfell Featherstone.
In 1985, Bob accepted a position at Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario, where he eventually became the Assistant Head of Student Affairs and took over as acting Head of School in 1994. In 1995, St. Michaels University School came calling and Bob made the move to British Columbia to become Head of School.
