I was a Champion in May 2016.
I always knew I had a passion for working with kids, but it wasn’t until I discovered the pedagogy stream of kinesiology at UFV that I realized what I wanted to do. I was able to put my love for being active and working with kids together, and Antigua was the cheer on top. Antigua was an experience that helped shape me into the educator I am today. I am now an elementary school teacher in Langley, currently teaching grade 4.
I remember teaching at a new school we were thinking of including in the program the following year. We were only there for two weeks, but the genuine hugs and feelings expressed from both myself and the kids is something I will never forget. We can make an impact on someone’s life in only a few interactions. That is something I carry with me to this day.
Antigua and this program will always have a special place in my heart
