My name is Hala Awad and I am a teacher for the before and after school care program. I have 15 years of experience working with children including, recreational therapy and working at Montessori school. I moved to Calgary in 2006 from Newfoundland but I am originally from Egypt. I completed my bachelor of Arts in sociology and I also have two diplomas in Psychology, and social work. Additionally, I have my Early Childhood Education and Child Development worker Certificate. I have always had a passion for working with children.
