Au début de ma carrière comme enseignante, j’ai assisté, en 1991 et pour la première fois, au congrès du printemps du OMLTA/AOPLV. C’était excellent de tous les points de vue, j’ai beaucoup apprécié l’accueil, l’ambiance, l’organisation, le professionnalisme, la qualité des nombreux ateliers qui étaient offerts. A partir de ce moment, je suis tombée amoureuse de cette fameuse association, et depuis je n’ai jamais raté un congrès. Tous les ateliers auxquels j’ai assisté étaient très enrichissants et engageants, j’avais toujours hâte à appliquer ce que j’avais appris à mes élèves. Ces ateliers m’ont beaucoup aidé à me développer et m’enrichir comme enseignante. J’en suis tellement reconnaissante.

De plus, je garde de très bons souvenirs des ateliers des congrès, soit en y assistant ou en les présentant. J’ai eu l’occasion de faire la connaissance de plusieurs personnes extraordinaires avec qui je reste encore en contact pour discuter, partager ou échanger des idées. J’attendais impatiemment le bulletin trimestriel “Communication” que je recevais chez moi, j’étais fière de l’apporter avec moi à l’école pour partager avec mes collègues les nouvelles idées et stratégies que je mettais en œuvre dans mes salles de cours et faire partager les retombées de mon expérience.

Alors, j’ai commencé à m’impliquer de plus en plus jusqu’au moment où je suis devenue la Présidente de cette magnifique association, dont je suis extrêmement fière!
