I'm Passionate About Teaching!

Hi! My name is Ms. Darlene, and I've always wanted to be a teacher. I've experienced the joy of teaching preschool, being a summer camp counselor, teaching 3rd grade, 4th grade, 1st grade reading, kindergarten and 1st grade physical education, and was the director of a preschool that also served the local community with after school care for elementary age students. I've also enjoyed the pleasure of homeschooling my own two teenagers throughout their entire education, and am now once again teaching my own preschooler.

Now, I get to teach YOUR child online! I can't wait!!

Do I have to buy any extra supplies?

Yes. You will need access to internet, and a printer with paper. A supply list will be given to you, listing things such as notebooks, pencils, scissors, glue, crayons, etc.

Is it easy to access?

Yes. You can access our online classes on Zoom on any device where you have internet.

Can I cancel anytime?


What if I miss a class?

If your child isn't able to make it to class one day, that's okay! We'll upload the class recordings and give you the link so your child can watch them!
