Ashley O'Neil


I am excited to have joined the wonderful staff at First Steps and Beyond!  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology as well as, a Bachelor's Degree in Education both of which I completed in New Brunswick, where I am originally from.  Having taught two years of Kindergarten and Grade One, I have spent this last year in Alberta expanding my experience in early childhood education, and I am eager to put these skills to the test.  I have a passion for teaching, especially the yearly years, and believe it to be a truly rewarding career path.  I strive to make my classroom one of personal growth and positivity for the student, much like what Lynne has created here at the school.  I look forward to the challenges this coming year will provide, not only from a teacher to student but student to teacher as well.  Together we will foster a collaborative and enriched learning environment, where each individual student will be supported and encouraged in doing their very best.  Aside from developing learning plans, planning and preparing for lessons, I can be found reading, walking my new puppy or touring around this beautiful province with my significant other and our camper.

I look forward to meeting and getting to know each and everyone of you; students, parents and fellow staff.
