Colette Farahani

Colette Farahani

Hello! My name is Colette Farahani and I have been working as an educational assistant with FMPSD for 7 years. This is my 4th year working with Ms. Klath as the Program EA for the Skills Program at Dr. K.A. Clark. My forte lies in literacy and numeracy intervention, and much of my professional development is done through UC Davis (MIND Institute). Before getting my Educational Assistant diploma, I worked in dentistry as a CDA/RDA on Vancouver Island for 23 years in family, special care, pediatric, prosthodontic, and orthodontic dentistry, as well as forensic odontology and maxillofacial surgery (specifically cleft palate). I also trained with Disaster Victim I-DENT at the RCMP Pacific Region Training Centre and with Bureau of Legal Dentistry at U.B.C. In my spare time, I volunteered in missing persons identification and continue to hold a team position with the B.C. Forensic Odontology Response Team. I have been fortunate to work with incredible mentors in my educational career at FMPSD which has enabled me to pursue various professional learning opportunities. Whether in my previous or present career, I have always enjoyed working with and advocating for children. It is a pleasure and honour to work with Ms. Klath and to be a part of the Dr. K.A. Clark team. “All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (Le Petit Prince)
