Teacher Stories

Andrée Morin

Lower Sackville

“We spend a lot of time with the kids. They’re in school for six or seven hours a day. It’s a lot more than just education.”

For Andrée Morin, a resource teacher with the French school board, working with students with learning disabilities and behaviour challenges is about so much more than teaching. “The emotional part behind it—there are kids that come to class that didn’t have anything to eat… kids come to school with baggage.”  And before learning can begin, these emotional and health needs must be addressed. She wants more time working with her students, “We are spending a lot of time on assessments, data collection and all of those things that are not teaching."
