Pushing Through Barriers

May 15, 2018

​On May 14th, Timmins High played host to several workshops presented on behalf of the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario. Dr. Robert Silvestri, Angie DeMarco and Lesley Andrew spoke to educators, students, and community members on how emotions impact learning, and how to beat the odds. Andrew, who grew up dyslexic, told participants that she succeeded in school by setting goals and pushing through her own barriers.
