I like to be outside in the sunshine discovering new places on land and in the water. I have worked with children in many environments such as an ECE program on top of Whistler Mountain to a Waldorf preschool in County Clair, Ireland. But I gotta say, SJD is the place for me!

I can be found in the Sunshine Kids room, although I started as a Superstar  in 2005! It’s an awesome family, I’m proud to be a part of. I’ve been called Mom, teacher, Chef, Madame, Anna, Trish, Sharon, Shandrea and even Spencer….but I am Andrea.

 

AmaraAmara

I have been working in childcare for three years, at summer camp, daycare, and from September 2015 at the SJD OSC. You can find me in the Cool Cats room three days a week!

I grew up in Victoria, but I have also lived in Halifax and love to travel. I am passionate about the outdoors, and particularly enjoy backpacking and canoeing. I bring this passion to my work with kids by encouraging them to spend time outside and to challenge themselves.

I’ve worked at SJD school for the past 10 years. I’ve worked on call at the OSC since 2012. I work every morning with the older children in the gym.

I love kids (have 2 of my own) and I love my job. I was raised on the island in Victoria for the past 26 years and I love it here.

After growing up in Fairfield and attending SJD as a child, I decided to join the fantastic team at SJD OSC. Twelve years and countless wonderful memories later, I am currently attending UVIC working towards my post-secondary degree in Elementary Education.

Hopefully one day I’ll transition into a teaching role at SJD so I’ll never have to leave. I am looking forward to another fun-filled and exciting year, bring it on!

I have been working at SJD since 1998 and have been part of the SJD OSC since 2003. I came to Victoria in 1984 to attend the University of Victoria to pursue a BA in psychology.

I love working with children, reading stories and singing. I live with my daughter Ariel and our 2 birds. I recently got engaged!

I’ve worked at SJD Out of School Club since February of 2011, shortly after joining the staff of Sir James Douglas Elementary as an Educational Assistant. I work Friday mornings and after school in the Sunshine Kids Room.

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, I’ve lived in Victoria since 1998. In my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, crafting and going for walks, photography and spending time with my favourite photography subjects: my 7-year old niece and 1-year old nephew.
