Toko Blais Odorczuk
Director of Development and Public Relations
"The classroom truly is the child’s sanctuary, and I feel privileged to be a part of it every day. I always find myself speechless when observing my classroom in action: the happy buzz of activity; the children helping each other. They are independent and eager to learn, and the joy I feel when I witness a child accomplish a task that was initially a struggle is priceless."

Toko has been a part of the MSGH team for over 15 years, working in several positions. She began as the After-Care assistant, where she worked for three years, while also working part time in the office. She then worked in the Primary classroom as an assistant to Preeti. In her first year as a toddler teacher, she taught the half-day toddler program in the morning and ran the music program for the elementary level in the afternoon, where she wrote and directed the elementary play. Toko has supported our board with their administrative duties and has been a parent educator, running Saturday-morning parenting workshops for new parents of babies birth-6 months of age.

Toko holds a BA in English Literature and a BA in Music Theory/Composition. Her AMI diploma is from The Montessori Institute in Denver, Colorado.

In her free time, she enjoys playing the piano and sharing the joy of music with little ones through private lessons. She is an avid reader, loves to play tennis and stay active with sports like biking, hiking, and spending time with her family.
