About us…

Here is a little bit of information about the educators in the classroom…

Mrs. Thall (Teacher)

I have been teaching for 11 years with different school boards including the New York City Board of Education, Toronto District School Board and currently Rainbow District School Board.  I have taught a variety of grade levels, intensive support programs and most recently my favourite, Early Learning Kindergarten.  I am married and have an amazing 4 year old son named Jeremy who is also starting school this year in Early Learning.  I have been studying the Reggio Emilia approach for the last couple of years and strongly believe in the philosophy that all children are capable.

Mrs. Shawana (Designated Early Childhood Educator)

Aanii! My journey as an Early Childhood Educator has taken me many places over the last  20 years.  Working with 4 and 5 year old children has been my life long passion. In the past I have taught both Preschool and Junior Kindergarten programs.  I am a trained CDA (Communicative Disorders Assistant) and worked for 7 years providing speech therapy to preschool and school aged children.  As an Aboriginal Woman and mother of 3 children I have made many connections with my Ojibwe culture and the Reggio Emilia approach where children contribute to their own learning processes. Working with the Rainbow District School Board in the Early Learning Kindergarten program has allowed me to embrace a philosophy where children are honoured and respected for their potential and capabilities.
