Mrs. Mary De Boer, currently a Grade 6 teacher as well as Middle School Vice Principal at Vancouver Christian School in Vancouver, B.C., has taught Grades 1 – 8 for more than 30 years. In 2006, while at a leadership conference, she was first introduced to the principles of Love & Logic.  It was the impetus for positive change in both her teaching and parenting skills.   She and her husband have survived and continue to enjoy parenting their two adult sons.  As well, she now enjoys having lots of silly fun with her two year old granddaughter.

Mrs. Loree Newman has been teaching for over 30 years. She started her career as a high school biology and Bible teacher and thoroughly enjoyed that experience . However, she unexpectedly found doors open to working with middle school students. The opportunity to teach a whole variety of subjects to one class, to build a closer rapport with students who were right at that important transition time between being a child and young adult, completely won her over. The principles of Teaching with Love and Logic were instrumental in making her years as a middle school homeroom teacher meaningful and rewarding. She still relies on them when working with students who need extra support and encouragement in the Learning Assistance program.

 Mary and Loree have been facilitating the effective Parenting the Love and Logic Way program for a number of years within the VCS parent community.  As well they continue to facilitate the 9 Essential Skills of Love and Logic program with the VCS staff.

This parenting program is designed to give you practical skills that can be used immediately.
