Ellie Bearss is part of the WACC WBL Co-Op program and works as a paraprofessional at WashIngton STEM Academy. Ellie dreams of becoming a child psychologist and realized she needed some experience with kids before pursuing that dream. She has several experiences daily working with various grade levels of students and is able to relate all she is learning about kids to her future career. She was surprised at how many difficulties some students have, and she looks forward to helping them! Ellie describes her co-workers as amazing and accepting of her as she assists in classrooms. Thanks, Mr. Ray, and Washington STEM Academy, for welcoming Ellie into your school family! She looks forward to coming to work each day!
