Education Assistant/Classroom Volunteer from September 2011 to Present, (6 hrs per week, 50 weeks, total 300 hrs) Burn Elm Public School, 85 Burnt Elm Dr, Brampton, ON, L7A 1T8 As an Education Assistant/Classroom Volunteer in a Grade 2 classroom for Mrs. Goraya, I supported with providing differentiated instruction in learning to accommodate various types of learners.

Something many do not realize is that school is an escape for some, and it is important for an educator to help their student in any way they can. I want to become something that I once believed was elusive: an educator that is passionate enough to put in the effort to guide his students to grow and strengthen all aspects of their
