Working with children has always had a special spot in my heart which is why I enjoy working at Foundations for Learning so much. I find it amazing to see the change that a student goes through from their first day of the program to their last day. Working with children has always put a smile on my face and has also always brightened up my day. I believe that every student is different and finding the best learning strategy for each child is key.
I grew up all my life in Enfield graduating from Hants East Rural High School with honors with distinction. I am currently in my second year at Saint Mary’s University studying a bachelor of arts with a major in sociology and a minor in criminology as well as psychology. After school, my goal is to become a child/ family social worker.
Growing up Cadets and darts were two very important things in my life. When I was 10 I started to play youth darts where for 7 years I was on Team Nova Scotia and for two years team Canada. Then when I was 13 I started cadets where I went through the program and moved up through the ranks to reach Warrant Officer First Class and to also receive the Lord Strathcona medal. I currently still play darts just not as much and even though I have aged out of cadets I have joined the Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC) to give back to the program what it gave to me and teach all the children that come through the program what I learned.
The quote “keep your dreams alive” is one of my favorites because I believe that anything is possible if you keep a positive attitude and are will to put in time and effort to work towards it!
