Mr RobinsHello! My name is Ian Robins. I'll be your instructor for English and Social Studies for grades 11 and 12. I'd like to let you know a little about myself just so I don't seem like some disembodied voice out there in cyber-space. So I thought I'd share with you some facts about my history and experiences and the things that make me tick.

I first started teaching in Australia years ago but I haven't always been teaching during that time. Every now and again I've taken a break to try other interesting stuff like working on ranches, raising horses, being a musician and traveling around the planet. I believe to be a good teacher you have to be a life-long learner and that means trying different things. You have to keep a balance in your life

My folks were English but I was born in Egypt. So I grew up around a lot of ancient ruins and history was all around me. Maybe that's why I've always been fascinated with history. I love learning about different cultures and people. I also love to share that knowledge.

I first came to Canada in 1988 from Australia. I taught for fourteen years in the land down under and then did some travelling. I worked in various fields before getting involved with drug treatment programs for youth and then finally back into teaching. I spent six years in the Northwest Territories teaching in a Dogrib First Nation community high school. My wife, Val, and I both enjoyed living in a native community and learned a lot about the culture.

After living in the south of the province for a few years, I took a position at Sunchild First Nation School teaching senior high English and Social Studies. I really enjoyed my time at the school and living on the rez. After a couple of years, Val and I moved into Rocky Mountain House where we lived for three years before moving out here to British Columbia.

I've always liked the outdoors and enjoy hiking, fly-fishing, riding my motorbike on long trips through the mountains and skiing. In the winter I work weekends as a ski instructor. Back in Australia, I did quite a bit of surfing too. I still have two sons over there who surf. Oh yes! I'm a grand dad too! So there it is! Now you have an idea of who it is you're dealing with. Like I said, I'm a great believer in being a life-long learner. You're never too old to learn something new. God has really blessed me that way and, so far, it's been a real adventure.

So feel free to contact me any time. I'm only an email or phone call away. My biggest desire for you guys is to have success. So run the race and don't give up. Keep up with the assignments and manage your time well. That's more than half the battle. Talk to you soon and God bless!

I am looking forward to being your instructor this year, so let's get to know each other shall we? My name is Ms. Linda Robinson and I have been with Sunchild E-Learning for over 10 years. I graduated from the University of Alberta and have been teaching for quite a few years now, including Red   Deer College for 5 years. My major in University was Instructional Technology and my minor was Aboriginal Studies, so this is really my dream job!

I live in Rocky Mountain House with my children, and we enjoy the outdoors.  My girls attended ScCyber and graduated from the program, one went on to Lethbridge College and graduated with her Registered Massage Therapy Diploma, and the other is in year 3 of the Bachelor of Education program at the University of Alberta.  Both graduated a year early because they were able to fast track through e-learning!

As a family, we enjoy the outdoors, ski (and snowboard), boat and love to treasure hunt.   I have discovered the joy of riding, and do that as much as I can when the weather is great.   I hope your year is a great year, and if you ever need to contact me, you can email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

My name is Liz Schweizer and I am very happy to have joined the Sunchild E-Learning Community as an English teacher. You might be curious about who I am, so here are some snapshots of my life.


I was born in the mountains of Jasper and raised in the prairie town of Brooks, Alberta. I studied English and French for my Bachelor of Education at the University of Lethbridge, where I spent long hours hiking in the coulees meditating (a little) and procrastinating (a lot). Because I like to learn about languages and cultures, I have lived and studied in different parts of Canada and abroad, including Vancouver, Ottawa, Quebec City and Istanbul. Most recently, I have lived in Calgary for about 10 years and during much of this time I worked as an English language teacher with new immigrants.


I believe that reading is one of the best ways to learn about the world near and far, and I’m looking forward to many exciting armchair travels with all of you in our classes. Let’s enjoy exploring stories, poetry, media and more – all the while communicating our ideas with each other in a supportive way, developing English prowess, working hard and having fun!

My husband and I have three boys - ages 13, 11 and 9. We also have two cats, a dog (a lovable chocolate lab) some tropical fish and a squirrel who has taken up residence in our backyard.  We live in the cypress hills on a ranch in Saskatchewan.  Living on a ranch has its advantages (we have lots of space to roam and the hills offer some breathtaking scenery) and some disadvantages (driving everywhere and no take out!).I enjoy reading, gardening, hiking, swimming, fishing, volleyball, skiing, and playing the piano.  My music includes a wide variety of rock, country and classical.I have taught in high schools in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Nova Scotia.   While in Alberta, I also worked as a helpdesk analyst and graduate student advisor with Athabasca University.  In between this, I also spent some time just being a mom.  My B.Ed major is math and I have a double minor in chemistry and special education.  I specialized in technology in my MDE (Masters in Distance Education).  I enjoy teaching in both the classroom and online.  I am passionate about learning and I look forward to our time together!
