Teacher Testimonial – Kathy Kopp

“Words cannot do justice to what happens to a child’s confidence in a multi-age classroom in which they are allowed to be a mentor, a leader, even an expert in some areas. By being with the same teachers and learners, a comfort level – a family feeling – allows a child to take risks a learner, grow as a person and become all he/she can be. Themes are changed every year and by choosing their own themes, guiding the unit of study with their questions, and finding those answers, children are invested and captivated by the journey. They learn how to find out information they are interested in – NOT just learning random facts, memorizing answers and regurgitating teacher expectations. They find learning meaningful and F-U-N!

I love watching children enjoy school. I love facilitating their learning journey. I truly believe Chance School is the best school in Louisville. The small teacher-pupil ratio allows children to receive attention in many areas they require. It is such an amazing benefit. I believe Chance gives every child confidence, success, problem-solving skills, leadership opportunities and instills a love of learning. Aren’t these precisely the tools we want our children to carry with them as they face the challenges of their world?”
