Spotlight Saturday, Amber Nore, Pre-K Teacher
What drew you to HASA originally? I was in the midst of my last semester of college and looking for a way to diversify my experience with children. So I applied to Gateway School to learn more about special education.
How long have you been affiliated with HASA and in what capacity? In November, I will reach my 3rd anniversary here at HASA's Gateway School.
What is your favorite memory with HASA? I was working with a student that is nonverbal and has significant hearing loss. I was struggling trying to get this student to understand one-to-one correspondence. His team tried many different methods with no success. Then it was like a light bulb went off in my brain. I developed a way for this student to understand one-to-one correspondence. It made me feel like a hero.
What is your favorite word? Progression. I just believe that I should be constantly evolving into a better me everyday. Moving forward and steadily progressing is very important to me.
What do you like most about HASA? If I could be completely honest, the summer break is my favorite. It is really easy to get exhausted or burnt out in this profession. But the time off is always right on time.
What have you gained from being affiliated with HASA? I really learned how much I care for children. I love to see them grow, learn, and overcome obstacles. I would never want a child to think that he/she is limited.
Tell us something about yourself that might surprise us. I have been fortunate to travel to Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand. It was such an amazing experience. My dream career is to be a Stay at Home Mother.
