Growing up on the family farm in Brooks, Alberta surrounded by immediate and extended family provided a secure and solid childhood. Monica graduated with a Bachelor of Physical Education and Education from the University of Calgary. She taught for six years at Calgary Christian School before starting a family. As a parent of four, she homeschooled for six years learning more than ever about teaching toward the God created uniqueness of each child. While homeschooling she began contract work as an educational facilitator with ROOTS and THEE. This was followed by an online teaching position with School of Hope where she developed the junior and senior high physical education program. The past 10 years have been spent as a teacher/facilitator with the Center for Learning@Home. A family highlight was a year spent living and teaching overseas in Slovakia where she taught her youngest daughter in grade 2. Monica came alongside a group of passionate individuals who had a vision for starting a Classical Education Schole group in 2017. With a love for igniting wonder and delight in children, Monica’s passion is to equip students to reverence truth, desire goodness and rejoice in beauty. Monica serves as a teacher with CCSchole and a tutor in the subjects of History, Grammar and Writing.
