Navigating through educational organizations in learning assistance services : a personal narrative of a learning assistance teacher in an independent school system in British Columbia Watanabe, Yuri


The purpose of the following study is to document some of my experiences as a learning assistance teacher in two distinctly different communities within the Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese or CISVA. In documenting my experiences which took place over the course of five years, I hope to raise awareness of the structural issues that impacted my work with various students identified as requiring learning assistance services. By identifying, describing, studying, and reflecting on these factors, it may be possible to offer recommendations that may expand how learning assistance services are provided within the CISVA.
