This year I have had honor of working for BTPS for 25 years. I started in Kitscoty as a sign language interpreter and now work in Marwayne which is my home town.
I am an Educational Assistant mostly in Gr. 8 for a student with a hearing impairment and get to work with the newest technology which is amazing. I also help out in Gr. 10 math which can be sometimes challenging on the memory some days. I have the joy of working with the Gr. 2 class as those little ones as so wonderful at sharing hugs and are just so darn cute. As well I get to assist in Gr. 5 and 3 for one class and really love their sense of humor. So as you can see I rack up the steps every day as the classrooms are at the other ends of the school and get to enjoy pretty much every age level even the junior highs. I feel very lucky and blessed to be ale to work with all of these amazing kids.
After school and weekends I have a couple other part time jobs that keep me busy. Also I get to enjoy watching my youngest son play basketball for the Lakeland Rustlers where he is taking elementary education. We get to do monthly road trips to Edmonton to see our oldest son who is attending University of Alberta in the computer engineering program. In my extra few minutes of spare time I like to read, garden, walk and watch a little TV.
