Cheryl Ottenbreit

Cheryl may have skipped class using a forged signature in Grade 12 to see a matinee of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, but she paid her dues (suspended). Despite this apparent lawlessness, Cheryl says she always completed her homework and was in class more often than not.

The Behaviour Support Teacher has been with the Division for 20 years and on the WTA Executive for seven. She was inspired to be an educator by exceptional teachers in her life who supported her development as a person and ensured her school was a safe place. It led her to feel good about herself in school and nurtured her desire to help others feel the same way.
