Welcome! I’m Alexandra (Sandy) Zahnd, the heart and soul behind Focused Futures. My experience in education spans the vibrant experiences of both elementary and secondary schools, where I’ve embraced the roles of teacher, guide, mentor, and learner. 

Amongst other roles I am an English teacher, history teacher, have a specialist in Special Education, Guidance Counsellor, have my Principal’s Papers, am a professional member of the Canadian Counsellors and Psychotherapy Association and, for the last 5 years, have been an IB (International Baccalaureate) Coordinator. 

I’ve dedicated my career to the holistic development of every student I’ve encountered. My approach to education is rooted in understanding and unlocking the unique potential within each student.

 Beyond the classroom, I am a proud mom of four remarkable children, each of whom has taught me the importance of patience, resilience, and the power of a personalized learning journey.

At Focused Futures, I leverage this abundance of experiences to offer specialized educational consulting services. My mission is simple: to help students navigate their educational pathways with confidence, curiosity, and a sense of purpose. Let’s embark on this journey together, creating futures filled with endless possibilities.
