Teachers of Brainfood Academy: Bringing Education to the Home

Meet our Teachers of Brainfood Academy where they bring education direct to the home for your family. An amazing alternate education choice, our teachers have gone through a vetting process so that we select the most educated minds for our school. Our goal for our staff is that they love to teach as well as have the desire to encourage free thinking. Because they excel in their craft, our students will be learning to think for themselves. They will understand that their voice matters and will learn how to distinguish between what is fact versus what is an opinion. More so, both the students and the teachers have a freedom separate from the traditional school set up, they can learn and teach from anywhere that has internet!

Meet The Teachers of Brainfood Academy

We are so excited that our teachers here at Brainfood Academy are glowing representatives of our Mission; which is simply “We strive to Teach and Educate our Students. They will not be indoctrinated to one idea or belief. To help them understand they have a voice. Enable them to discern fact from opinion and to provide them with the means and support to define and follow their ambitions and dreams.”

With that being said, finding the right teachers for our platform was not easy. However, with patience and asking the right questions, we feel we have succeeded. So, as we launch our school, more teachers will be onboarded with the same core values to educate and not indoctrinate.

Initially locating teachers that are a fit for our platform was a task we did not pursue lightly. Taking patience, as well as asking the right questions, we feel it was a successful journey thus far. As word of mouth spreads, we know there will be more teachers reaching out to us who are a beautiful fit, especially as we launch our inaugural school year. Growth in both teachers and the student body itself is expecting to rise steadily and we are excited to say that we can handle it! So let’s go meet our Teachers of Brainfood Academy!

Mr. Cantu

I am Mr. Cantu and I am here to show the world of music. Music theory will show you where you can find music is everyday life. Music is all around you if you know where to look. And how to recognize it. Music theory is just the beginning of all that music encompasses.

My goal here at Brainfood Academy is to educate students and create engaging lessons in music. The main focus will be to instruct in learning how to read musical chords. I also will have a separate class for instruction in playing the guitar. By using my experience and knowledge in music, the student will be able to become skillfully proficient in the art of music.

As the creator and founder of Mariachi bands as a grade and credit in the State of Texas with my colleagues, I hope to show the love of music to my students of all ages.

History – Mr Janecek Shows You History Is Fact

Mr. Janacek
Mr. Janecek

According to Mr Janecek, we need to learn our past. Why? In order to understand our present. As a result, we can plan our future. Contrary to popular consensus, history is not up for debate. It is what it is. It happened. We cannot change it or dispute it. However, we can discuss it. Learn from it and educate ourselves on the mistakes as well as accomplishment of our past.

It will also help us understand why things are happening today. Mr Janecek will engage our students in open conversation and learning on the past and present history. From the Renaissance to current events. Using facts and not opinions, he will lead our students in their growing development of finding their own voice. As a result of learning to discern fact from opinion, they can better make decision for themselves. Learning how to think for themselves as well as reason from fact given, will make our student a better person. Moreover, they will be a vital influence in our ever changing world.
