Meet our ELSA
Hello! My name is Christa Miniuks. You may recognise me as I have had a variety of roles at Southfield Park over the past seven years that include teaching assistant, special needs assistant and speech and language intervention assistant/specialist. I also currently help run the Southfield Park Singers.
I completed my ELSA training in November 2015 and have been running the ELSA programme since then. I have also attended training in the Drawing and Talking programme, an 11-week program for children who have dealt with trauma. I am in school all day on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and also meet regularly with other ELSAs and the school’s Educational Psychologist so that I am able to share ideas and keep up to date with new resources. I thoroughly enjoy working with the children in our school and am proud:
- to be a part of a caring community where everyone can SUCCEED
- to help provide a HAPPY and exciting environment to INSPIRE the children to learn and grow
- to help NURTURE the children’s talents and encourage them to EXCEL in everything they do
- to help children SHINE!
