Instructor: After graduating with a BA in Criminal Justice and Public Policy from the University of Guelph in 2007, Catherine moved overseas and taught English in Greece and South Korea for a combined 4.5 years. After this incredible, life-changing experience, she went back to school to obtain her Bachelor of Education from Queen’s University. Catherine has since taught little ones in traditional elementary schools, both in Ontario and here in BC!
Recently, after having a child of her own and realizing that she wanted to stay home with her daughter and explore alternative education models, Catherine started a YouTube channel for kids called Kindergarten with Ms. J. This has led to her current endeavour, which is creating an online kindergarten academy, set to launch September 2023.
Catherine absolutely adores teaching, and she has deeply missed the face-to-face time with children. She is thrilled (and grateful) to have the opportunity to reconnect with little ones at McTavish Academy, and share some of her favourite stories. She can’t wait to meet you all!
