Hi, I’m Anne!

My name is Anne Vaughan and I am the owner of Challenge Island in the Summit and Medina county regions. My husband and I live in West Akron and have 2 children currently in University. We also have 3 cats. I am a graduate of the University of Toronto and while my professional experience is from the corporate world, I always wanted to become a teacher. My father was a Principal and I grew up surrounded by educators who shared their passion for education on a daily basis.

I am now thrilled to be following my dream and working in the education field. Challenge Island is relatively new to North East Ohio but through many in-school field trips, summer camps, and Girl Scout workshops we have already seen how much children love the program and how well it reinforces their school curriculum. As important as it is to develop STEM skills it is equally important to give kids the opportunity to learn and demonstrate the softer skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, creativity, and communication. Helping to build this well-rounded student is what I am passionate about.

Hope to see you and your children at a Challenge Island event soon!
