There have been many ups and downs over the recent years with the pandemic. One of the upsides is that it has ignited a fierce, creative, and innovative spirit in many people as they’ve learned to adapt to these new times. Teachers on Call could do no less, helping families ensure their children continued to learn and thrive despite the disruptions. As a result, Teachers on Call’s very own Joanne Sallay was one of twenty North American entrepreneurs selected for the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women class of 2022.
