Ellyn Schaffner is known for bringing lots of light and love to Gus Wetter School, stated the press release from Clearview Public School.
She is a volunteer teacher for Grades 1 to 6 makerspace which is an after-school computer/Ipad programming and coding class.
She started the afterschool program at the Castor-based school to support student learning and to help working families with after-school childcare.
Schaffner also sits on the local daycare board which works with the playschool class so three and four-year-olds can come to playschool.
Any student that has had the pleasure of being taught by Schaffner has benefited by having a teacher who truly cares.
