Our College Plaza Academy
Meet the Director
Hello! My name is Mary Jane Manalastas. I am the Academy Director here at Kepler Academy, College Plaza location. I was born and raised in the country of the Philippines. I finished my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and I had over seven years of teaching experience in the childcare field here in Canada. I am holding a Level 3 Early Childhood Educator certificate and successfully completed the Flight Curriculum Course at MacEwan University and familiar with implementing the emergent Curriculum.
I am very passionate about teaching young children because I do believe that every child has the right to explore the world through play. Creating a responsive environment where children can learn and grow.
During my spare time, I enjoy planting and taking care of my orchids. I enjoy spending quality time with my family by cooking and watching tv with them.
