CLASS ASSISTANT

VEIO MAHLANGU

Veio is the classroom assistant at Nova.

She is always there to make sure all the learner’s physical needs are met, whether it’s an arm brace that needs to be put on, glasses that need adjusting or making sure everyone is drinking enough water and eating well. 

 

Her main priority is maintaining a safe environment for our learners. This allows our learners to direct all their focus towards their school work, knowing that there’s always someone keeping a close eye on anything they might need. 🪐 

 

She assists our classroom lead by modeling AAC, assisting the learners and compees with their devices and facilitating play on the playground! 

 

Veio’s love, passion and patience for our learners shines through every minute of the day.
