Mary Laboucan – or Vera as she is known in the community – has ben working for years to achieve her employment dreams & goals. With employment experience as a Medic and a Teacher’s Assistant for 16 years, Vera decided it was time to return to school to upgrade her education and follow a new path. Originally intending to complete high school and attend University to pursue a Teaching Degree, on completing upgrading she found a new opportunity that was made for her. The Head-Start program was set to go in Little Buffalo and if she was willing to take Early Childhood Education programs, she was a perfect fit.
Working with ASETS (now ISETS), Vera was able to take programming from Portage College through distance/on-line classes. She is scheduled to complete her Early Childhood diploma in June 2019!
