We believe that children have a ‘hundred languages’ of expression and we seek to support all of those languages by offering resources, time, and space, supported by experienced educators.
“Once children are helped to perceive themselves as authors and inventors, once they are helped to discover the pleasures of inquiry, their motivation and interest explode.”
~Loris Malaguzzi, Reggio Emilia
Our Land Acknowledgement shows recognition of and respect for Indigenous peoples from the past and the present. We acknowledge that the property of Richland Academy is situated upon traditional territories of the Anishinabek, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit, Mississauga and the Wendat peoples.
Recognizing this land is an expression of gratitude and appreciation to those whose territory you reside on, and a way of honouring the Indigenous people who have been living and working on the land from time immemorial.
Adrianne brings to Richland her exuberant energy and her love for learning. She has worked with children in a variety of roles- coach, tutor, and teacher for over 5 years. She is known for her enthusiasm for life and brings a creative and fresh outlook to the classroom. As a teacher, her goal is to help guide children to discover the joy of learning in and out of the classroom. She too, continues to learn and grow as an educator and is currently pursuing the ‘Applied Behavior Analysis’ program and ‘Diploma in Teaching English as a Secondary Language’ program to further help support her students to becoming life long learners. When Adrianne is not at school you can find her traveling the world or ‘krafting’ a costume for her next upcoming convention.
