As part of giving back to the community, Mr. Wolf helped raise money for the Tabitha Foundation of Cambodia and participated in a house-building program. He volunteered at Soup Sisters and has helped raise money for Movember. Mr. Wolf is also a proud sponsor of the Rundle Gives program. 

Rundle Studio combines opportunity and equity beyond the walls of a building.

Mrs. Becky Carr | Lead Teacher

I joined Rundle in 2011 and have taught in both the College and Academy programs. I began my career as a music teacher, but my passion lies in math and science. During my career at the Academy, I have taught math and science in Grades 7, 8 and 9.

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Calgary and my Bachelor of Education in the Middle Years Program at the University of British Columbia. I also have a degree in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music.

I live with my husband Steve (Mr. Carr), my one-year-old daughter Audrey, and my dog Maggie.

During my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and doing puzzles. Music has always been a big part of my life and I love to play the piano and help with musical theatre. I have the tendency to be unreasonably competitive when it comes to sports, board games, and trivia.

I have supported numerous fundraising efforts to ensure the success of our school-based humanitarian trips to Cambodia and Ghana to help build and repair local schools. 

I’m excited to teach online and have the ability to reach students from all across the province.

Mr. Steve Carr | Teacher Advisor

I started my career teaching at an IB boarding school in Toronto, but I began my Rundle journey at the College Primary Elementary in 2012. I joined the Academy in 2015 and have taught grade four and elementary physical education as well as coached various sports at the junior high level.

I received my Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Physical and Health Education, and Bachelor of Education at Queen’s University. Currently, I am working to complete my Master’s of Education with a focus on Mental Health and Counselling at the University of Calgary.

I am married to Becky (Mrs. Carr) and we have a beautiful daughter, Audrey (one), and dog, Maggie (four).

I love music and have performed at venues around Toronto, Kingston, and Calgary. I am also an avid runner, biker, and swimmer, and enjoy listening to audiobooks or podcasts as I train for triathlons.

I am well-known in the Rundle community for my love of bow ties, mustaches, and Movember. In 10 years, I have led various Rundle Movember teams to raise over $55,000. I also support the Rundle Annual Giving Campaign, and helped ideate and organize the Rundle Rocks fundraiser for the Rundle Bursary Fund in spring 2020.

Rundle Studio is an opportunity to rethink education.

Mrs. Tisha Mellor | Teacher Advisor

In the fall of 2004, I started teaching at Rundle Academy in the elementary division. I have over 15 years of experience working with students who have learning disabilities. Prior to teaching at Rundle, I taught at another independent school for individuals with special needs. During the past several years I have tutored at all three divisions, both in-person and online.

I received my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Calgary.

I am married with two children. I have spent the past six years at home with my kids and now they are both students at Rundle College.

During my leisure time, I enjoy spending time in the mountains with my family and friends. I also enjoy camping, hiking, biking, and swimming in the summer and cross country skiing, and snowshoeing in the winter.

As part of giving back to the community, I helped build the Academy school playground in 2014. Over the last two years, I have raised funds for the diabetes association and I volunteer for my community hockey league with fundraising and tournaments.

Teaching online is so unique as it blends the best practices of teaching with excellent technology.
