Cara Felde

Cara Felde has been teaching with Island Discovery for nine years. She began when her twins (now 17 years old!) started homeschooling with IDLC and she was hired as their teacher! Since then she has taught primary classes both on Bowen and at our Lakeview location.

In addition, she supports many IDLC full-time home learners. Cara has always been very interested in alternative education and began her own schooling at the New School, one of Vancouver’s seminal “free schools”. Cara is passionate about the attachment-based learning environment that IDLC supports, and loves working closely with her classroom and FTHL families.

She believes the kids she works with teach her something new every day, and feels very privileged to teach and learn in such a supportive and forward thinking environment.
