Education Assistant

"The best job ever!" is how is describe my position as an Early Childhood Educator and Educational Assistant. I am so excited to be a part of the First Steps and Beyond team. I received my diploma in Early Childhood Education from the Nova Scotia Teachers College but started my journey in my home province of Newfoundland. Over my 20 plus year career in childcare, I have worked in many different fields such as elementary schools, pre-schools, daycares, and after school programs. I have been fortunate to work and collaborate with many professionals who have fostered my passion and devotion to working with children and families. I can honestly say I have found my calling, the enjoyment, and reward from watching children realize their full potential, every day is a new adventure! I am a huge advocate for early intervention and early literacy and am thrilled to work with a team of like-minded individuals. I look forward to bonding with the tight-knit community of First Steps and Beyond.
