Grade 5/6 Teacher

It is a gift and an honour to be part of the By Design Learning Team and to witness the growth and development of a child. From teaching letter sounds to learning times tables it is a thrill to see students grow in confidence and reach for more.

Grade 7/8 Teacher, Principal

Time has taught me that the organizational structures of the past are struggling to keep up with the rapidly changing educational landscapes of the future. As an alternative to the needless challenges created by high board member turnover and constant changes in direction and vision, I truly appreciate the opportunity to serve as a director and teacher of a forward-thinking learning centre.
