Carolyne Cybulski

KINDER­GARTEN TEACHER & PRIN­CI­PAL

The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators -

Ep.i.c School was founded 16 years ago when Carolyne Cybulski and a class­room par­ent re­al­ized they had like-minded goals in what they wanted from an ed­u­ca­tional es­tab­lish­ment. “The par­ent wanted the best ed­u­ca­tion for her child, and I wanted an op­por­tu­nity to work in an ideal learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment where teach­ers work col­lab­o­ra­tively to de­velop a rich cur­ricu­lum,” ex­plains Cybulski, who got her jump-start in the teach­ing field when she was a read­ing tu­tor in north­ern On­tario, work­ing with chil­dren who had been in trou­ble with the law. Headed into the 2015-16 school year, the self-pro­claimed book lover will be dou­bling as kinder­garten teacher and prin­ci­pal. In her joint role she will have the op­por­tu­nity to men­tor teach­ers and keep them abreast of cur­rent re­search and new cur­ric­ula. Although she is an­tic­i­pat­ing an ex­tremely busy fall sea­son, Cybulski re­mains en­thu­si­as­tic.

“The spark of in­ter­est, the ex­cite­ment when a child de­codes their first word … I have the most amaz­ing job,” she says. “How could I not be mo­ti­vated to get up in the

morn­ing?”
