I have been online teaching since 2006 and love it!  

It has been so much fun getting to know PAVE students over the years.

Our school is a place that students move at their own pace, in their own space.  

It allows for tons of creativity and independence! 

I hope that you enjoy this freedom but are also willing to reach out for help when needed.

Let’s connect!  Looking forward to the coming year.

My name is Heather Dunsworth and I have been teaching at PAVE since 2013.

I teach a variety of subjects that include high school Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, and

a few option courses.I also teach Grade 5 Language Arts and Science.

PAVE is a great place to teach and learn in a flexible way! I love being able to work one-on-one

with my students through phone calls, online meetings, and library visits.I also love our monthly

get-togethers where we get to have fun and build our community at PAVE!

Hi there! My name is Nick Benoit and I teach Senior High English, CALM, some elementary courses, and some of the options courses as well. This is my fourth year with PAVE and I can honestly say that it is the best job I’ve ever had*. I live in Grande Prairie with my wife Beth, our daughter Ruby, and our dog London (whose sole purpose seems to be to disprove the belief that poodles are smart).

PAVE is a great place to work, but it is also a great place to be a student. We are very fortunate in that we are able to be more flexible than a traditional school, and for many of our students this is exactly what is needed.

Finally, I’d like to end with a bit of advice. It is important to try your best, but don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Learn from them. With the right amount of rigor, it is possible to fail forward!

  

*(A tie actually, I used to deliver pizza in a small town and that’s tough to beat!).

Hello!  My name is Kate Thon and I am so happy to be one of your teachers.  

I have taught many things and many grade levels over the years (French at every grade from 4  to 12!) and can honestly say I’ve loved every subject and every grade level. I just love getting to know people and helping them achieve their goals.

Some of the less traditional courses I teach which are both fun and very practical include communication and relationship courses.  I hope that some of you can participate in these at PWEC and if animals are your thing, are also able to join us in Harmony with Horses where we explore the physical and emotional benefits of working with horses.  

Outside of work I have quite a menagerie of odd and unusual farm animals at Haywire Ranch where I live.  I also run several wellness programs featuring my favorite animal, the horse! The quirky personalities of my animals provide many humorous stories and I can’t wait to share.  

I look forward to getting to know you and working with you this year!
