What You Can Do To Survive Home Learning Without Pulling Your Hair Out Or Self-Quarantining in a Hotel Room
...with home learning, your child has their teacher who uses the Profound Learning method and teaches Alberta curriculum. All the learning is a continuation from what was taught in the classroom prior to quarantine, there is a very clear direction and focus, and, most importantly—sigh of relief—you are not the teacher. Your role is to simply support the learning.
Finding the Silver Lining
...we have always emphasized to students the importance of being an Independent Worker. We have always believed that this habit is one that would set students up for success, both now and in the future. However, neither students nor we could have imagined how this habit’s importance would be emphasized during a global pandemic.
What? I’m Now My Child’s Teacher!
...in the midst of juggling working from home and keeping the normal household functioning, parents are now putting in long hours trying to help their children over the hurdles of learning outside of the classroom. Here’s the good news. You are still the PARENT! The teachers at Master’s are still the TEACHERS. Your role is what has always been – to teach what we call the “soft skills of life”.
Where Does Courage Come From?
I have found that courage is linked to your centre and Big WHY. ...whatever is at the centre will be your source of security, guidance, wisdom, and power. It's what gives you your sense of worth, your direction, your ability to make decisions and your capacity to act.

Reaching Mastery Through Self Assessment
