My name is Courtney Thomson and I am the French Learning Resource Teacher at W.S. Hawrylak School.
I completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Regina in the BAC program (French Education) and was fortunate enough to complete some of my studies in Quebec. Initially, I wanted to become a high school teacher and completed my internship at John Paul II Collegiate in North Battleford, but after receiving my first position with Regina Public in elementary school at École Wilfrid Walker, I knew I was where I was meant to be!
I began by teaching mostly middle years (grades 6-8) and during that time, after working with many students who struggled in the areas of reading and math, and completing adaptations in the classroom for them, I knew that my passion for teaching was in the area of special education.
I completed my Certificate in Inclusive Education at the University of Regina in 2012, and plan on completing my Masters of Education in the area of Early Childhood Literacy.
At home, I have two daughters that keep me learning every day about childhood development and the differences between all children and how important it is to look at each child individually.
I love my job and have enjoyed my past 7 years as Learning Resource Teacher at W.S. Hawrylak School, a school that promotes growth and individuality for all students.
I believe that all children can learn, and that it is up to us as a team of teachers, parents and students to find the best educational practices to help all children succeed!
