Seeking a career change from public sector management, I attended Camosun's BEST program in the fall of 2011. I was really impressed by the supportive environment I found at Camosun and the commitment to make education accessible to all, so I was thrilled to join the School of Access as an Instructional Assistant in spring 2012.
Since then I have had the pleasure to work at various locations in the community where Camosun offers upgrading, including my ongoing role as the IA at the Victoria Native Friendship Centre. I feel privileged to work with and learn from Indigenous students. It is especially rewarding to see reluctant learners overcome anxieties about math and computers and to support students develop as writers of their own stories.
I am also a student, working steadily towards a Diploma in Library and Information Technology at Langara College. These specialized skills complement my role in the classroom where I help students with their research and how to make sense of the vast resources on the web. I will be serving my first practicum at the Camosun library.
