Hello! We are the Learning Support/Resource team for Robertson School. Each of us has scheduled our time into classrooms from Nursery to Grade 6. Our objective has been to teach alongside the classroom teachers, leading and assisting with lessons in reading, writing and math.
We also have been able to work with groups of students in room 137 where we are able to offer an alternative workspace including flexible seating options and a unique space for learning.
We are looking forward to continuing to work with all classrooms and watching our learners flourish.

Inclusion Support Teachers“Inclusion is a way of thinking and acting that allows every individual to feel accepted, valued, and safe. An inclusive community consciously evolves to meet the changing needs of its members.” Manitoba Philosophy of Inclusion.
Robertson provides a wide variety of supports for students with exceptional needs in order that they may have appropriate educational opportunities and participate fully as members of Robertson School. The inclusion support teacher works with classroom teachers in developing individual educational goals for students. Inclusive Education is a partnership between home and school. Parents are part of the team that make the decisions regarding the needs of the child. The Inclusive support teacher and the classroom teacher work collaboratively to provide differentiated work/instruction to include those with diverse needs and abilities, have a sense of personal belonging and achievement. The classrooms are provided with alternative seating for example stand up tables and chairs that provide movement etc. The inclusion support teacher works with other professionals like Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy to meet the needs of students. Classrooms work on providing activities that promote student communities and a sense of belonging for example spirit buddies and sharing circles.
