Meet the teacher

Francean McCall

A qualified scientist, herbalist and passionate teacher.

Hello, I’m Francean. Teacher, mother, wife, and principal at Functional Education. After years of study and a career in Hydrology and Coastal engineering at a large Hydro-Power company, I began my teaching journey as a Science teacher in a state school, then moved into the Waldorf Steiner field of education. It has been over a decade now that I have been privileged enough to spend my day in art and music and living in a world of storytelling and wonder.

My scientific studies reinforced my love and wonder of our planet, and I even spent a number of years training further in herbalism and viticulture, then running a private clinic in natural medicine. My students learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and gain a good understanding of sustainability, and the dependence we have on this amazing planets resources.

I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to learn in a safe, encouraging environment, one where learning is exciting, and students graduate not only well educated academically, but socially resilient, with the ability to tackle problems logically. was born to bring this dream into reality.

If you’re looking for alternatives to traditional schooling methods, for whatever reason, I look forward to introducing you to our fantastic learning platform.

Francean McCall, Principal.
