Hi, my name is Elaine and my home town is Hinton, but I have been living in Calgary for the past 12 years but I am hoping to relocate back home. My background is in Social Work. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work and I am also a Registered Social Worker(RSW). As an RSW, I hold a very strong set of morals, values and a high Standard of a Code of Ethics which means that in my profession, I am accountable to follow all of these as a Social Worker. Throughout my career, I will always be held accountable for my actions and I must conduct myself in a professional mannerism at all times which I can proudly say that yes I firmly adhere to all of these.
In my previous working career in Hinton Ab, years ago, I worked in the Yellowhead School Division in the capacity of a teacher's Aide and at that time, I worked with young children who lived with learning challenges of many sorts. I enjoyed my time working with this young age of children and I found it very rewarding knowing that I was making a difference in their lives.
For the past 12 years that I have been living in Calgary, I have had may wonderful opportunities in the many different areas where I very much enjoyed working one on one with a wide variety of different aged individuals ranging from young school aged children, young adults, adults and seniors, families and individuals who were experiencing many challenges in the different areas of their lives. One of my positions while working in Calgary was with the Calgary School Board of Education in a High School. In this program called the Aboriginal Pride Program, I worked very closely with the students in groups and on a one on one basis as well as administering psychosocial educational programs and teaching them more about their culture and heritage.
Throughout my career as a Social Worker, I have always enjoyed my work and it has been such a rewarding journey and continues to be so. As a mother of 4 now grown young adults and 3 school aged granddaughters, I can understand struggles that individuals may encounter or have encountered and I strongly believe that by working with and supporting these individuals that challenges can be worked through and can be overcome with the help, understanding,commitment and in working with individuals in an accepting and non judgemental ways. I have come to the appreciation of knowing how important school learning is and how sometimes we can experience many challenges of sorts and as a Social Worker I value the work and accomplishments of others that I witnessed while working with them.
I would look forward to meeting and working with you knowing that together we could make a difference in our lives and become more successful in achieving our dreams and reaching our goals. Thank-you.
