Note From Our Head of School, Teresa Bronsky
Note From Our Director
As you are making a decision about how to proceed with your child’s education, I wanted to tell you a little about myself. I am the co-owner of Bridge Builder Academy BBA, a wife, a mother of 4, and a grandmother of 2. Through the years, I have been a waitress, a counselor, a pastor, a mission team leader, a Girl Scout leader, a teacher’s assistant, a few other things, and of course a teacher.
My desire to teach grew as I realized that my favorite teachers taught me not only skills, but a love of learning. From a young age, I was always trying to teach someone about something, whether it was my brother, my friends, or my pets. (My horses were my favorites.) Now, having been in the education field over 30 years, I have worked in a variety of instructional settings with families. Through my experience in public schools settings, private schools, tutoring, operating a childcare business, and home schooling,
I have learned that for a child to really learn, we must find a differentiated uniquely designed instruction for each child. It is not about fitting in but about exploring the world of learning in their own unique way. My personal passion is to help children learn to love learning again. Children and their families need to see the light at the end of a tunnel, the hope that learning can be fun and that they can learn.
At Bridge Builder Academy, our mission is to comfortably challenge students by providing the highest quality of individualized education. That means that we challenge them to learn, but at their own pace.
We teach until mastery of the skill, not to a deadline of a test date. Instead, we are putting flexibility and understanding back in to education. The curriculum is based on each individual student’s strengths, deficits, learning styles, and interests. We hire only the best teachers to use a wide range of recommended and researched curriculum to teach our students at their most comfortably challenging level to maximize their learning potential!
No two children learn the same and rather than forcing your student into a system, we tailor educational program individually to your child’s specific educational needs. I love the philosophy of a customized education taught one on one. For some children, it is the only way that they can learn. For me, it is the best way to learn.
I am honored that you are considering Bridge Builder Academy.
