“Teaching at Christian schools has been a blessing in my life. I enjoy the opportunity to share my faith with my students in various contexts. I also enjoy the freedom of being able to use my creativity and encourage my students to do the same. It is exciting to see a class grow and mature so they are ready to face the world.

Mrs. Hallock - JK/SK Homeroom

During her educational journey she enjoyed various teaching placements specifically in primary grades and after school reading programs.
She has a true passion for working with our youngest learners! Helping each child progress in all areas of their development, academics, social, language and motor is a challenge that she is honoured to accept daily. Mrs. Hallock strives to create a classroom of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment
Mrs. Hallock’s education began in Christian education and truly believes Christian education makes a difference in the lives of the students as it did for her. She had many placements and teaching experiences in public schools within Ontario and realized quite quickly she wanted to teach in a Christian school environment. Resurrection Christian Academy offers a space for children to feel safe and understood, and when a child feels safe and understood the best learning happens. At RCA we pour into our students and instill in them that they are a child of God, made in His image and who are dearly loved by their Heavenly Father. More than anything we strive to create a safe place where our students can grow mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually without limitations.
Mrs. Hallock has two young children and enjoys camping in their trailer in the summer and adventurous activities, where they can enjoy the sunshine and swimming. She also enjoys baking, cooking, and shopping.
