Welcome! Bienvenue!

Thank you for visiting! 

My name is Miss Kaley Thompson. I am a mother to two young children, stepmom to a teenager and have worked as a certified Alberta teacher since 2003. 

When I began my journey as an educator, I was placed in a grade one classroom for my first observation. Ms. Linda Fleenor, a tiny, energetic lady with a big smile, welcomed me and asked me to crawl through a tiny paper door into her classroom! Little did I know that this tiny door was actually the entrance to Wonderland and a foreshadowing of my future in education. 

This woman, who I like to refer to as, “The Tiny Teacher,” was an inspiration. She was loved by all; strangers who met her became instant “friends,” and her smile and sweet words always made a person feel good. I paid very close attention and took lots of notes for my University class... I wanted to be just like Linda. 

When my class was over and it was time for me to move on with my courses, Ms. Fleenor gave me a book, “The Teeny Tiny Teacher,” and I have read that book to my students and have created activities for the children, just like Linda’s, for the past 17 years. I even had the opportunity to be her colleague and taught just down the hallway! I was so fortunate to have my mentor, my inspiration, only a few steps away!

A few short years ago, The Tiny Teacher, Ms. Linda Fleenor, passed away. My heart broke. I vowed that I would spread kindness, in her honour, every single day of my life. I vowed that she wouldn’t be forgotten; that her light didn’t just go out. 

Sadly, this year will be my first voluntary leave of absence from my duties. This is the year my friend’s light will shine. 

It is my pleasure to introduce, The Tiny Teacher/Le petit prof - an education solution for families in Alberta. 

The Tiny Teacher is a small group, inclusive, K-6, homeschool-based, education solution for families seeking options for their children during this pandemic and beyond. 

I look forward to connecting with you and beginning the journey! 

Warm, kind and fuzzy wishes, 

Miss Kaley Thompson
