Hello, my name is Ashley and I am a preschool teacher at First Steps. I have been in the field for over 9 years and graduated the ECE apprenticeship program at Mohawk College. I am bilingual in French and English and inspiring to learn Spanish. I am a mom of two beautiful children and 3 step-sons whom inspire me daily to be a better teacher and person. I believe that all children are equal and each one of them are individuals.My teaching style is very inspired by the Reggio-Emilia Approach: I believe that a natural environment and using loose part provides children with endless possibilities to discover, learn, embark on new adventures and explore their imaginations! I am looking forward to working with the staff, children, their families and our community.
