Adriana Alfaro

Little Scholars Educator|小小学者教师

Adriana has Reggio-inspired experience instructing and assisting in the classroom since 2014. She likes to explore many teaching methodologies to adapt to the learning needs of her students since she believes that not all children learn the same way and thus their pathways of learning should not be limited. Her goal is to connect with every child by providing them with a safe environment where they can grow independently.  Adriana loves working with students and being part of their journey because their love of learning is so pure and they are not afraid of anything.

Heather Nguyen

Little Scholars Educator|小小学者教师

Heather loves being a student as much as being an educator. She is an avid scholar who explores cultural dynamics within political science and the humanities through the lens of her Vietnamese-Canadian heritage. Her passion to give back to the education community was fostered by the exceptional educators and advisors at the independent school she attended, St. John’s School. She credits her academic success at SFU and AMI training to the early and specialized education provided in private schools. Through her Montessori training and experience working at a Montessori preschool, she learned to apply proven Montessori methodology such as Following the Child, an approach where an educator observes the child and provides enriching activities catered to their Absorbent Minds and Sensitive Periods. Heather strives to develop a child’s confidence by strengthening their capacity for independent learning and development. Her favorite part of being an educator is having deep meaningful conversations with the children. She believes she can make a difference in society by helping children become conscientious, respectful and engaged participants in the classroom and wider communities.

Christina Liao

Early Childhood Educator

Prior to joining KEY, Christina was guiding children at a Montessori preschool. She has been drawn to the children in this age group, especially by their absorbent minds. She feels that having a nurturing teacher within an academically and socially enriching environment sets the foundation for future success. With her training in Montessori, she understands the areas of sensitive periods for children’s development and tailors appropriately challenging activities to draw out their potential. She takes pride in creating a safe environment where children feel secure and independent enough to become creative problem solvers. As a result, they can apply their critical thinking skills and collaborate with others to create a better future together. She loves to engage with the children in songs, grace and courtesy activities, and story-telling. Her respectful approach gives the child a safe place to grow to appreciate the love of learning.
