Why we do this – lessons learned from a parent and an educator
I have learned over my many years in the educational field that there is a “box” full of rules, red tape, and an overwhelming amount of information that parents are expected to sort through on top of dealing with the daily stresses of life. Watching parents feel overwhelmed and unprepared prompted me to create KnILE Center in 2008. My vision for KnILE was to begin building an educational resource center that provided parents with more than just a private school or after school tutoring program. It would be a collaborative environment where parents could express their concerns or confusion about their student’s learning difficulties and/or social struggles, and where those questions and concerns could be answered by empathetic and knowledgeable staff. Our promise to our parents has always been and continues to be that we will do our absolute best to introduce them to every available resource to empower their student.
After 30 years as an educator my biggest pride comes from watching students find their unique learning style or talent and reaching their full potential. Every student can thrive in the right learning environment. At KnILE we see that kind of success because we test, target and tailor educational solutions for each student. We teach and guide them beyond academics and help them become the best individual that they can be.
