Welcome back!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

This year I am the Student Siccess teacher for Elma TPS,  North Perth Westfield ES, Mitchell DHS, Mornington CPS, Milverton PS and South Huron DHS.  I also provide prep. coverage for two classes at Elma TPS on Day 1, 2, 3, and 4 in the morning.   I am excited to travel to other schools to work with staff, students and communities to support student success across the Avon Maitland DSB, while maintaining my connections and teaching at my home school Elma TPS.

I am looking forward to helping with experiential learning opportunities both in and outside the schools, exploring pathways and career planning and continuing to facilitate lifelong learning in all of these schools. I can be reached at Lorraine.wardweber@ed.amsb.ca.  My Twitter account is: Weber@Elma/SS@Elma_Gr8.
