Laurie Tiegs - Honoured Respite Provider

Respite Provider since- 2010
My daughter had provided respite for the family I work with for two years and she moved out of town to begin her teaching career. I had come to know the child and he had come to know us. He was comfortable in our home and loved our dogs. I didn’t want to say goodbye so I offered to continue in her place and the family agreed.

1.  How did you get interested working with kids?

I have always wanted to work with children from a young age. Through a mix up at the college I was placed in the wrong program and was exposed to the world of special needs so I stayed in the program and have made a career out of helping kids who need me and what I have learned so far.
