Who we are . . .

As a Scholé Group, we are a homeschooling community that employs the content of a classical curriculum and the pedagogy of restful learning embodied by the word scholé. The word scholé (pronounced skoh-LAY) comes from a Greek word that means “restful learning,” with the connotation of “contemplation,” “conversation,” and “reflection.”  Our mission is to pursue deep engagement that results in enjoyable, permanent learning—that is, to bring scholé to our homeschool co-op.

Leslie is excited to help students explore the rich, foundational language of Latin. Leslie has a B.A. and B. Ed from St. Mary’s University in Calgary and a certificate in Creativity in Educational Practice.

Victoria Erhardt

Choir Director

Victoria is excited to build up students through the gift of music. She believes that a classical foundation for music can ignite a curiosity for the arts that will enrich students for the rest of their lives. Born and raised in a Christ-centred, musical home, Victoria has experienced God through his Gift of music. She hopes to be a part of teaching music in a way that draws students closer to Him. She graduated from Oklahoma City with her Bachelor of Music in Musical Theatre in 2017. Docendo discimus – by teaching, we learn.

 

Megan Zunic

Tutor

Megan never dreamed that the design of God and her love of learning would lead her to the beautiful adventure that she and her family find themselves on: homeschooling!  She is so grateful to daily unwrap the gifts of time, restful learning, connection, and continually discovering new things about each other and the beautiful world God has created for us to enjoy.  This Schole community has been inspirational and a wonderful source of encouragement to her entire family, and she looks forward to continue to partner together in bringing glory to God by pursuing truth, goodness and beauty.
