I am relatively new to the SDSS family & Board as I was recently elected at the AGM in the Spring of 2015.  I have been a Student Support Services Teacher in Regina Catholic Schools for 14 years, 12 of those years within an integrated preschool setting.  I am grateful for the opportunity to work with students with a variety of abilities and gifts each and every day.  The top 5 reasons I became an educator… 1.   I was inspired by one of my very own teachers to go in to the profession. 2.   I value & enjoy learning just as much as my students (sometimes even more). 3.   I have the opportunity to build authentic and meaningful relationships with my students and their families. 4.   I believe that all children are competent and capable learners. 5.   I want to make a difference in the lives of ALL my students. So…I guess this is what lead me to a position on the Board of the Saskatchewan Down Syndrome Society.  I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others and in my short time on the Board, have found ways to do this through advocacy and mentoring others.   November 1-7, 2015 is National Down Syndrome Awareness Week.  Take some time this week to reflect on the opportunities you have been given in life because someone you know could #SeeTheAbility in you!   “Be the change you wish to see in the world”  Mahatma Gandhi   Kindest Regards, Lesley Perrault Board Member, SDSS
