Teachers/CUPE on stike

What do you all think about the strike? 


Spring Camp at Cartwheels


Spring break this year is for two weeks. Since the preschool is closed, I am fortunate to attend Cartwheels spring camp this week. Cartwheels is an indoor gym with apparatus, trampolines, foam pit, and etc. They have classes for parents and tots to age 13 to having competitive cheerleader classes. The teachers are excellent and they clearly have a lot of experience with young children. I really like the way they speak to the kids, and how they reinforce each child. I also really like it when the teachers give physical reinforcements like high fives and if a child isn’t looking when speaking , they say “where’s ____ eyes?”.

At Cartwheels, I support a child with pdd-nos and I told mom that I 100% trust her child to be with any staff there. There have been times when I would fade away and see how they handle certain situations, and I am happy to report that they know what they are doing. Being there made me very happy and I learned a couple of things from them.

I recommend everyone to try Cartwheels Gym in Steveston, BC! http://www.cartwheels.ca/index.htm

Teachers aren’t the same as they use to be =(

I am slowly starting to see how the world is so different now. There are so many horrible teachers out there right now. Where is the love? As some of you know I am a Behavior Therapist and I work with children who are on the spectrum. Luckily I have 2 kids who responded well to therapy and they are high functioning. I have a 6 year old who was recently diagnosed and the school refused to give him an IEP.  When asked why they said it was too late. Then we asked for one next year and the said no, we asked why and they simply said he’s doing well and doesn’t need it. School gets 16000 from the government to help the child. I wonder what they’re doing with the money…….
I am planning to write an email to Supported Child Development in hopes that they can help. Has anyone of you experienced this?
