Gitanjali works in SD68 as a Student Support teacher, working hard with and for learners for whom school is sometimes challenging. It is important to remember that everyone has talents so even though a student may struggle in one area, that student has talents in other areas. Sometimes it’s a case of using one’s talents to bolster areas that a little more challenging.
