Why Teacher’s Pet
Teacher’s Pet Educational Services, created from a desire to provide extraordinary educational experiences, offers support for teachers and parents. With options including in-school field trips, online virtual programs (video conference and field trips on demand), private tutoring and retail teacher resources and projects, we supply the tools to engage students while saving you time and resources.
As a parent and teacher, our founder and CEO, Ruth Pabst, knows how challenging it can be to engage and inspire students. Teacher’s Pet is the result of a vision that Ruth had while teaching. Wishing there was a way to support teachers in the classroom and students with varying learning needs, Ruth launched Teacher’s Pet from her home in 2006, primarily focusing on private tutoring. One year later she began offering curriculum-based In-School Field Trips.
Since then, Teacher’s Pet has grown to offer over 200 different programs, including in-school programs for students in Alberta as well as online options for learners across Canada! With an amazing team of over 50 passionate and enthusiastic field trip presenters and tutors, our desire to provide extraordinary educational experiences to all learners remains at the forefront of what we do. Dedicated to the success of students, our approach to learning is creative, engaging, and appeals to all learning styles.
