- Completed a Master of Education degree, majoring in Inclusion.
- Took on the role of Inclusive Education Lead (Key Contact) at Seba Beach in 2012, and was successful in securing funds and accommodations for many of our students with special needs while supporting teachers with Individual Program Plans and implementation in an inclusive environment.
- Co-facilitated a Rainbows/Spectrum group. The program included a two hour group session each week, where we went through a variety of exercises that were aimed at helping the students process and find positive strategies to cope with loss.
- Attended a number of professional development seminars to enhance my ability to support my students and my colleagues, such as Non Violent Crisis Intervention, Level B Assessment, Rainbows (group loss counselling) Facilitation, Working Successfully with Difficult and Disruptive Students and a number of other workshops at the Banff Middle Years Conference (2013) and the annual Teacher’s Convention.
