What were you doing before attending Sprott Shaw College?

I was working in Walmart.

Why did you choose Sprott Shaw College?

This college offers awesome flexibility when it comes to enrolling in the program. I’ve had past experience studying at Sprott Shaw College, and getting a job after graduation was easy due to Sprott Shaw’s top-class reputation.

How was the admissions process?

It was really easy. I was nervous about getting in to the school system after so many years but Shannon from Chilliwack campus made everything so easy and quick.

What program did you choose and why?

I am a single mother, and my first priority is my child. I chose to enroll in an Education Assistant course so I can have the same vacations and time off as my little one. It’s a great option for moms, especially if you love helping children in need.

What was the environment like during your time at Sprott Shaw College?

I can’t express it in words. Sharla, my teacher, was the reason I completed the course. There were many moments when I considered quitting, but she is not only a brilliant teacher but also a wonderful human being. She made everything seem so manageable. Learning in a school where we encounter people from different cultures and communities, yet still feeling included, is remarkable. I am grateful that I finished the course with Sharla as my teacher.

Where was your practicum or co-op and how was it?

My practicum took place in the same city at an elementary school called French Emerson. I had the opportunity to learn a lot, and my instructor was incredibly helpful in making things easier for me.

How long did it take you to find a job after graduation?

I got a job right after I finished my practicum.

Where do you work? Can you explain your duties?

I am working in Chilliwack School district as an Education Assistant. I help little ones in need.
