  About Me
Hi there.

I am currently an Educational Assistant with the Catholic school board (OCSB). I work with children with special needs and pride myself on being one of the most empathetic, patient EAs at the elementary school I work at. I am looking for a job where I feel safe during this pandemic and I am looking after children, for July and August. I have about 12 years of working with children of all ages.
Of course during the summer months and when there’s no school, I usually do some form of childcare with the board but with the pandemic, it’s a different story this year. My partner and I are also trying to have a baby as well so it is important I feel safe, with minimal risk. I also own a good vehicle as well, have certified first aid and my criminal records check done from the school board.

I really look forward to introducing myself - I think we would be a great match, where we would be comfortable and feel safe during this difficult time period.

All the best,
