Educational Assistant

Hello.   My name is, Michael Ogin, and I have joined East Lake Elementary School on October  2nd, 2017 as an Educational Assistant.  It is an absolute pleasure to be working at East Lake Elementary School.  

Originally, I am from a small city in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. I have recently moved down to Rossville,  Georgia at the end of June, 2017.

Back in my hometown in Pennsylvania, I studied at King's College where I earned a B.A. in Spanish with Secondary Education Studies (I graduated from King's College in Wilkes- Barre, Pennsylvania in 2004).

Furthermore, after obtaining my Bachelor's Degree, I had the privilege of teaching Spanish at two Catholic Schools for a year in Wilkes- Barre, PA, and I had the privilege of teaching the Spanish language to 7th graders as a long-term substitute from October, 2005 until February, 2006.

Additionally, from June 30th, 2014 until June 16th, 2017, I had the wonder privilege of working in various schools to work with students with behavioral disorders (I was a Therapeutic Staff Support Worker, also known as a TSS Worker).  Also, I was able to obtain an Applied Behavior Analysis Certificate through my past position as a TSS worker. In order to obtain my ABA certificate, I had to take ABA I, II,  and III.   Next, I had to take a comprehensive examination, as well as do a field assessment in order to receive my ABA certificate.

 As much as I have enjoyed working in the behavioral health field,  I am very excited to be back working in the education field.  I am very happy to be working this year at East Lake Elementary School.

 

Thank you,

 

Mr. Michael Ogin Jr
