What our Parents are saying about TEACH-NW
Hi!! Just wanted to take a minute and tell you that Madison is absolutely loving school. It’s only been a little while that you all have been back in session, but it has made all the difference. We talk about school; we talk about assignments; she’s excited about the next day. It’s a huge change I see in her, and I can’t tell you, and Mrs. Kline, thank you enough. You both have always been in her corner, and I don’t have the world to show my gratitude. School is something that I gave up on and didn’t have anyone to be accountable to, and I am trying my darndest as a parent to stay on top of my children and be there for them and push them (in a good way) to stick with it but to also try and be very aware when something doesn’t seem right. I think we are on the right path now. Choosing TEACH-NW was the right way to go.
I can only imagine how much work you guys do. As a parent watching their child find classes they love, and come out of their shell, be comfortable showing others their true self other than just at home is the best thing in the world. Knowing that a couple of teachers go the extra mile to make that happen, there are no words. Thank you.
“I was not having a great time in school until I joined TEACH-NW. The reason why I wasn’t enjoying school is because I was sort of wasting my time there … I have improved my work ethic at home and I’m getting a ton of work done in shorter time! I also have more free time as I can do work at my own pace, not everyone else’s pace!”
Henrik Pavulans-Sherwood, 5th Grade Student
"I don't know what to say except thank you for allowing me and other learners to participate in this program. Coming from more traditional school systems, I feel incredibly blessed to be able to attend Village Home and take online classes through TEACH-NW. I felt as though I needed to take the opportunity this year to express how grateful and excited I am to be able to be in this program through my work samples and communications with Anthony. I sincerely hope that if I and other learners show that we can take responsibility for our own learning, this program and others like it can be available to more learners in the future. It's truly a privilege."
Aaron Johnson, Parent
"When my son told me he wanted to design his own education experience, one part of me rejoiced in his desire to follow his curiosity while another cringed at the many unknowns. What other possibilities were there? Who would understand and be able to guide us? Would he still be able to keep all of his options for his future open? When we found TEACH-NW, I immediately knew this was the right path for him. Thanks to this program and the wonderful facilitators, he has stayed in the drivers' seat of his education, demonstrated his passion for learning in ways that leverage and expand his unique talents, kept all of his higher education options open, and become a happy and thriving life-long learner."
Amanda Johnson, Happy Momma
p.s. Maybe I'll see you at Mock Trial! 🙂
Thank you for building a school where all kids feel important and valuable.

I must admit that your prompt and knowledgeable responses changed the way I thought about charter schools. Having left our previous charter, I expected the same type of communication that I had received from them.....very delayed, no information or very little information in response to my questions, and the left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing. You, and the entire TNW staff, have fully renewed my faith. The communications I've been involved with from TNW staff has always been prompt (almost instantaneous) and if an answer wasn’t known, they at least communicated that to me then got back to me when they did have an answer. I truly feel like TNW values the parents and the students and words can't express how much I appreciate that.
Thank you, again, for allowing us to be a part of the TNW. 🙂
Karla Newman, Parent
“This school year so far has been amazing thanks to TEACH-NW! I wasn’t happy in regular school, mostly because of how little time we could spend learning about things we were passionate about. There were constant disruptions from other students that kept everyone from learning. It was very chaotic. Now when I can set my own educational goals ….. I feel better about learning new things and am much less stressed.
I have also been able to dance a lot more than last year and have accomplished a lot in dance just since fall term started. I am very passionate about dance! I’ve danced since I was 3.5 years old. The most exciting thing about my dance is that I have started doing pointe work in ballet! I’ve been so excited about this for a long time and thanks to TEACH-NW!
Another exciting thing is that in September I auditioned for my studio’s competition team and was accepted! I was chosen by the choreographers to compete in four pieces. We will compete four times this year and I already know I will love the experience. Because of TEACH-NW, I am able to dance every day and have so much more fun learning!”

“Our year is off to a fabulous start thanks to amazing supportive staff and awesome resources!”

Elementary Student of the Month for October, Julia Van Cura
Our elementary student of the month for October is 4th grader Julia Van Cura! Julia’s enthusiasm and passion for learning deserves to be recognized and celebrated. Her mom, Erin, shared: “She often asks to do more learning in the evenings and on weekends, and she gets a thrill out of all things related to learning! Her enthusiasm is inspiring and contagious – she has had a huge influence on our family as a whole and our passion toward exploration and education.”
As her EF and Tribal History teacher, I have noticed the qualities of a joyful, lifelong learner. Julia is a critical thinker, curious about the world around her. She is also a creative storyteller, an avid reader, and an incredibly hard worker. I recently had the opportunity to read a short story she wrote, The Magic Portal, which is a wonderful example of her talent and creativity.
I asked Julia to tell us a bit more about herself, in her own words:
1. What is an accomplishment that you are most proud of this year? I am very proud of my story, The Magical Portal. It is the first story that I typed on my computer. Most of my other stories have been handwritten.
2. What is your favorite subject and why? My favorite subjects are Writing, Reading, and Spanish. I like words and language.
3. What do you love most about homeschooling and being a part of TNW? I like homeschooling because I can spend most of the time learning about and practicing the things that I am interested in. At home I can be myself and do what’s important to me. I also like that with TNW, I can be in a book club and take a Tribal History class. I like that there are three writing assignments for each year at TNW.
4. What are some of your hobbies? Reading, writing stories, typing, cooking, designing houses, birding, and camping are some of my hobbies.
5. Do you have a book you would recommend to other kids your age? I would recommend Emily’s Runaway Imagination by Beverly Cleary. The main character, Emily, has lots of adventures in this book that I think kids my age might like.
6. What is your long term goal or dream? Someday, I will become an author, illustrator, book binder, and a publisher for my books. I’m really curious about how all that works and I want to learn more.
