Pauline Tuck - RECE

I started my journey at Seneca College King Campus Lab Observatory Teaching School (KOLTS), during my field placement as an ECE student. During the summer and winter breaks from school, I worked as a student on the floor with my supervisor (at the time).  I felt that this is what I would like to pursue and be effective in an early learning setting. When I completed my school and graduated with Honors, I joined full time with KOLTS. I was able to have the opportunity to work close with King Seneca College faculty during my time at KOLTS, and for many years I was part of many fond experiences and memories. 

KOLTS Lab School is closed at this time and I am very honored to continue my journey and join with the team at Seneca Newnham Lab School. 

Over the years, I watched children learn, develop and saw them grow into remarkable people in school/high school/college and university. Some students that have moved forward from KOLTS returned again and shared their experiences with me. I have been blessed to have an opportunity in this career that I am passionate about. I feel each and every child is unique in their own way and I am inspired to learn alongside each child every day.

I was part of Forest School at Seneca King Lab School (KOLTS) and enjoyed being in an outside classroom environment. This was a wonderful opportunity for children of all ages to be able to be engaged in many explorations and work as a team together or discover by themselves. 

Children are part of many possibilities and wonder that can be achieved from learning, balancing, creativity and science outside.
