“The PFO EA team provides outstanding educational support to the students at the school. Every day they are fully engaged in ensuring that our students are learning and progressing to the best of their ability. This year we have witnessed incredible growth in our students, and both their parents and their teachers rave about the great job our EAs do. PFO is blessed to have a team that works so well together and cares so deeply.”

GSH EAsThis week we are also celebrating the Educational Assistants at The Good Shepherd Catholic School - Danielle Attard, Aynsley Barron, Kevin Brezynskie, Amanda Caldwell, Arlene Fauteux, Kim Harrison, Cathy Pikor, and Sarah Zimmer (Missing from the group photo is Lori McGauley.) The group was nominated by a colleague who said:

“I would like to recognize our educational assistants that work at The Good Shepherd Catholic School. Everything they do is centred around what is best for our students. They are caring and heartfelt in their approach and the collaboration among them is beyond imaginable, bringing out the absolute best in each other.

These individuals have spent countless hours creating, planning and preparing various sensory activities. Their talents shine through in the creation of the sensory pathway, student portfolios, 3-D fabric books, individual sensory bins with personally made sensory tools/toys, and sliding schedules, just to name a few.

This staff group works tirelessly for not only the students with whom they work for but our entire school community. They have created colourful and welcoming displays in our cabinet that greets the parents as soon as they enter the school. They take care of the students like they are their own and make every decision based on what is in the best interest of the student.

The Good Shepherd is blessed to have such a wonderful, caring group of educational assistants. Our school and community is lucky to have them.”

We would like to thank all of these educational assistants for their commitment to Catholic education at our board.
