My name is Crystal (a.k.a. Miss Howell) and I am very excited to be a part of the team here at DCE! I will be working predominantly with Kindergarten for the upcoming school year and let me tell you ... this is a perfect fit for me! I have close to 20 years experience working with this age group of varying needs and abilities and can hardly wait to help guide our newest learners into grade 1 :)
I have been an Educational Assistant for Red Deer Public for five years now and absolutely love my job and the life it has provided for me here in Alberta. Prior to being in this role, I lived in Nanaimo B.C. (my hometown) and worked many years as a support worker, an ECE educator, and respite care provider.
At home, I have two children and two cats. My daughter's name is Paris and she will be starting high school September 2017. My son Jayce is 3 and currently living the daycare life until he's old enough for school.
My cats.. well they are my cats. One is very old and her name is Salad. The other one is only a year old and his name is HorHay. Both cats fight like ninjas throughout the day but snuggle all night??
