Katherine Dennis began her student placement through the Educational Assistant & Special Need Support Services Program at Niagara College. Katie hopes to gain the experience necessary to become a Support Worker with our organization. Through her student placements she has gained many new skills and has learned to work collaboratively with staff as a team in the best interest of the people she is supporting. Niagara College Program Coordinators recommended Katie very highly for placement with our organization based on her academic achievements as well as her past Co-op placement evaluations. Katie has been a volunteer with Tanguay Place, Participation Niagara, Notre Dame High school (Learning Resource Students) and with the “Special Learners” class at St. Kevin’s School. Katie has truly been an asset to the Residential location where she has contributed over 200 placement hours this term.
