One class announces the 3rd winner: Tracy Schroeder

Three mothers – Tracy Schroder, Renee Bichel and Kristine Acuna – saw a need they did not meet.

“I’ve already met our other two co-directors, Renee Bichel and Kristine Acuna, because of the things our children needed,” said Tracy Schroeder. “We all studied at home, but I didn’t find the right program to suit our children’s personal needs. I was looking for things that help with dyslexia, we still wanted our children to have fun, interactive moments with other students and friends.” and also things. “

After naming the things they would like to have in a potential educational program, this idea became a reality.

“One day, on the way back from a nature tour, Kristine and I talked and listed all these things we wanted to have in our program, and she said, ‘What’s stopping us?’ Schroeder said. “At that moment, we just realized that we had to be brave and do what we knew, that it was best for our own children and that other families would want to join in, so then all three of us joined forces. “

They founded Mighty Roots Academy in Grandview, Missouri.

“We provide active multi-year education for students in a nature-rich environment, which is why we do it at Mighty Roots,” Schroeder said. “Sometimes we have four, sometimes even five, options in each block, and students, with the help of their parents, choose which classes to attend, and then we take over these areas and incorporate all types of learning.”

Schroeder says they cover math, science, history and science based on the interests of students.

The grandmother, whose granddaughter attends the Mighty Roots Academy, nominated Schroeder.

“The Mighty Roots family has been joined by two other children of family members who have been severely bullied in their schools. They have turned from annoying and anxious to happy and learning students. The growth has been remarkable,” the grandmother wrote.

Tracy Schroeder was awarded as the next winner of One Class Time at a Time.

“I had no idea,” Schroeder said excitedly.

Schroeder says he plans to use the money to upgrade buildings.
