Bernadette Homerski was an educator for 30 years in both British Columbia and Ontario as a Classroom teacher, Special Needs Education Specialist, Principal, High School Chaplain and Consultant. She served as the Pastoral Assistant at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Waterdown for fifteen years and currently volunteers as Pastoral Assistant at St. Ann’s Parish in Hamilton.
She began her career at CHOICES as a member of the Board of Directors for two terms, lead the Accreditation process in 2010 and currently is the Director of Quality Assurance and Administration.
The move to Developmental Services was a transition, a ‘growing up’, with the children she had taught in her capacity as a Special Needs Educator. She worked alongside one of her former Special Needs Students on the Board of Directors for a few months. Her experience with adults includes volunteering at L’Arche, Mobile, Alabama and creating a welcoming faith community for all individuals in need of support.
