Our Founder

Colette Stone

Colette enjoyed a 17 year career serving families in public elementary classrooms in the west end of Toronto. Her specialties include primary reading development, special education support, elementary mathematics programming, vocal music, librarianship, and building communities of learners. She enjoyed working with students in every grade from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Colette and a team of colleagues produced annual whole school musicals, she often conducted the primary choir, at the K-8 school she most recently worked at. These productions were a source of great joy for the children, their families, and the school community.

Colette founded Elevate Literacy in September 2020 with the vision of bringing a high quality educational experience to families in Toronto’s west end. She approaches teaching and learning the fundamentals with a growth mindset. She values the process as well as the outcomes. Colette believes in leaving the conventional classroom, exploring the neighborhood and being part of the community.

"Our family was fortunate to have Colette teach two of our three kids. Colette’s passion for reading and insights into reading development encouraged our kids to read and learn for pleasure. We saw huge jumps in their reading abilities after spending time in Colette’s class..."
"Colette was meant to be a teacher. She is patient, kind, encouraging, supportive and our children adored her. My son had Ms. Stone for first and second grade. Now in grade 6, he still speaks of her so fondly. He still says to this day “she taught me the most out of any teacher..."
