"Teachers change the world! Like the ripples from a stone thrown into a pond, the effects go in all directions forever. One never knows how one lesson, one illustration, one email or one conversation may impact a life for eternity. This is especially true teaching at Cornerstone, where we can share about the values and beliefs that are central to our existence as human beings: Christ as Lord."

Hazeltine is the founder and former principal of Airdrie Koinonia Christian School in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada. He followed God's call in his life and established this school in 1987 to integrate a student-centered curriculum with an influential Christian foundation.
