She has been an elementary school teacher in Ontario and Alberta. She completed her Orton-Gillingham training at Fraser Academy. Ms. Connolly has also worked in academic libraries in Oxford and Rome.
Ms. Connolly finds the best part of being a Learning Specialist to be working one-to-one with students, using curriculum that is completely tailored to their learning needs. Ms. Connolly’s most rewarding experience at Fraser Academy is navigating non-readers through their individualized curriculum and then witnessing that eureka moment when the joy of reading is discovered.
Ms. Connolly loves travelling, painting, sewing, growing vegetables, cooking, reading and taking long walks.
