Homeroom Teacher

I completed my degree and my M.Sc.Ed while teaching in Ontario many years ago.

In 2016 I began teaching my online teaching career. I enjoy the courses I teach and appreciate the flexibility teaching and learning online offers.

I am also a recreation director at a very busy gymnastics gym and I coach competitive trampoline and tumbling. Teaching online allows me to have the best of both worlds. Organization is the key but I am able to teach and coach and attend competitions.

I founded the school 20+ years ago with one goal in mind: to help students. 

When we started there were no other online elementary schools in Ontario. We wanted an approach that was specifically designed for kids that would be effective for a variety of learning styles. 

It’s been an exciting journey collaborating with teachers, instructional designers, tech gurus, parents, and students. It's been such a privilege to watch the program grow and see the positive impact it has had on so many students and families.

In these unprecedented times, we are happy we can help.
