Alaina has been at Paddington since 2009. Prior to joining the front office team, she taught in our classrooms. She is now the Office Manager in the main office Monday – Friday. Alaina, her husband, and her three children, two cats and one frog live in Morrison. This year, Alaina’s son attends Paddington in our four-year-old Hunca Munca classroom.
“When you ask me what I’ve done at school today, and I say, “I just played” please don’t misunderstand me. For you see, I’m learning as I play. I’m learning to enjoy and be successful in my work. I’m preparing for tomorrow . Today, I am a child and my work is play” -Excerpt from Just Playing by Anita Wadley
Being a part of a school that teaches children to love to learn is an amazing feeling. Play is what we do here at Paddington, and I am proud to be a part of it, as well as send my own children to do the same. I have seen my children grow and learn in the best ways possible. I do what I do because being an adult is no fun!
