TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I grew up in a family of 8 and had gained a great interest in working with children and youth. In high school, I became a peer helper for the Exploring the Arts program, assisting peers with disabilities in drama, art and dance, and volunteered for Special Olympics. I graduated from the School of Child and Youth Care at Ryerson University and is a member of the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counsellors (OACYC). Through my 4 years of University, I gained a lot appreciation for programs that assist children, and youth who are most vulnerable. In my first internship at a community centre, I assisted in a social skills program, and in diverse drop in programs that range from infants to 16 years of age, including programs such as a food bank, baby rhyme time and preschool. I supervised students in the Youth Diversion program, as well as coordinated an afterschool Homework Club. In my second internship at an elementary school in one of the most high risk areas of Toronto, I assisted a child and youth worker in a variety of programs: E.S.P (Empowered Student Partnership), P.A.L.S (Playground Activity Leaders in Schools), Girls group, 1:1 Intervention/ Behaviour Modification Plan, LOVE (Leave out Violence), social skills, peer mediation, Safe School Safety Survey, Meditation for an L.I class and Camp Olympia. I obtained training in Crisis Prevention Intervention. My 4th year Independent Study focused on ‘The Impact on Practitioners when Working with Traumatized Clients’. I also entered in the Pepsi Refresh Project in 2010, where my program idea ‘Girl Talk’, had reached 10th place out of hundreds of applicants in Canada. I also engaged in creating a self-esteem building activity for Dove’s Self-Esteem Weekend in 2010. In 2013, I was the program coordinator and facilitator for an After School Program at a community centre. Currently, I am the lead facilitator for the social skills programs, and various other programs that involve self-esteem building and anger management, and is offering in-home support services and behaviour supports to families living in the Region of Halton. I am the Program Manager for Expanded Learning Concepts, where I design and implement programs for children of various needs, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Aspergers, ADHD and low self-esteem. On the side, I am on-call for part time, full time, on long or short-term assignments; working in schools, hospitals such as Hospital for Sick Children, programs or at home, committed to improving quality of life for individuals. I also provide respite work for a family with two boy's with FASD. In addition, I now supervise foster homes in Oakville that provide longterm care for those with various complex behavioural and medical needs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a child-centered approach, working present in the moment while learning through the child's lens, and building off their unique individual abilities and strengths. All children and youth are resilient. It is important to move through the day trying to stay in sync with children and youth’s rhythms for trusting and growing, empowering those in need.
