My name is Melissa Weik and I feel blessed to have been part of Ecole Mother Teresa School community for the past 6 years. I have worked in various classrooms from kindergarten to grade 9. I have been assigned to children one on one, worked in small group settings, supported whole classrooms and even put my own French Immersion schooling to the test while assisting students and teachers in our Immersion program. I believe in helping students reach their full potential. To me it is simple, make connections, see the beauty in ALL children, help them see what you see in them, and never give up. I can honestly say, I truly have found my passion working as an Educational Assistant.
My husband and I have two children, both are students at EMTS in French Immersion. Our son is in grade 9 and our daughter is in grade 7. We have lived as a family in Sylvan Lake for the past 17 years and enjoy all that our community has to offer. When I am not watching, coaching or volunteering with extracurricular activities, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, hiking, biking, walking our two Goldendoodles (Macy & Winnie), being on the lake, snowboarding, reading and playing board games.
Best wishes for the new school year and as I say to my kids each morning, learn lots, have fun and Be Kind! :)
