I am a full time student who also works part time in an Out-Of-School Club with children aged 5-11. I go to UVic fro Environmental Studies, and plan on pursuing a post-grad diploma in Elementary Teaching. I am a very creative person, I enjoy sewing and knitting, and I love being outside and exploring Vancouver Island. I also love cooking and baking, and gardening. I am trained by the Pacific Institute for Sports Excellent (PISE) in children's games and activities, and have also participated in several workshops for Behavioural Management and Anxiety Management in children. Most importantly, I love children. I really value what they have to say and ensuring they grow to be confident, safe, and happy. I look forward to speaking with you.
