"York University played a pivotal role in helping me to achieve all of my success. I always had the support of my supervisors Dr. Isabel Killoran and Dr. Gillian Parekh and from fellow graduate students Marlena Ochnik, Ellen Brown, and Niki Belegrinis. My experiences both theoretically and practically have helped to shape me into the educator that I am today and have exceeded my wildest dreams! I am grateful for this strong foundation to my career in education and to Dr. Carol Anne Wien for introducing me to the Reggio Emilia Approach that I have travelled to Italy to learn.
