Elements Academy

Taught by Troy Schroder

Background Check Confirmed

I have been in childcare for almost 15 years now, and love every moment of it!

I have been an educator for the last ten years, with a focus on inspiring children to become ethical stewards of wild places and humanity.

I have also been working for five years as a tutor and teacher, including to students with a wide variety of intensive needs.

I love project-based integrated academics, and creating mentoring opportunities for children and teens.

I enjoy setting firm boundaries and then letting kids explore within those boundaries for themselves- child-led and inquiry-based learning is the way into the future of education!

I also am a master storyteller, and as humans are largely story-driven creatures, I integrate a lot of elements of storytelling into my teaching style.

It allows me to create deeper connections with my students, which I cherish.
