Welcome to my website!
My name is Alexander Patton and I am currently an Educational Assistant with Edmonton Public Schools. I also currently serve as a director on the National Board of Directors for Tourette Canada.
My passion is working with kids and helping them reach their highest level of success. I particularly like working with youth with behavioural challenges and those who struggle with school. I follow the philosophy that there is no such thing as a bad kid, just some bad choices.
My passion I believe comes from my personal history growing up. In the past I have struggled with school such as bullying, learning problems, and more. Many of these difficulties didn’t come to light really until later in my life when I was diagnosed with severe ADHD, anxiety, and a sensory disorder.
My goal is to help each and every child succeed. However, I do not just want them to succeed with our definitions of success, I want them to discover their own! I do this not just through individual support, but by forming a connection with the youth I work with and doing my best to get to know “the whole person”.
In my “spare time” I enjoy writing and particularly enjoy dystopian/apocalyptic and other fiction.
Through this website, you will be able to find out more about me and what I stand for. I encourage communication! Feel free to contact me by email or through the contact page.
