“Working at Guardian has been such an adventure; each day I have the opportunity to collaborate with and inspire educators who are professional, educated, driven to be the best they can for their children, families and colleagues; I get to have meaningful conversations with families, where I can be a sounding board, a support or just share in the celebrations of their children's accomplishments. There are those days where I am a problem solver, a mentor, a dietitian and a teacher, the job is varied and always exciting. Guardian have provided me with the support and training to extend myself professionally, pedagogically and personally”.
