Emily Nascimben

Technology Coach

About me.

As a young student with a learning disability, I struggled academically in many areas until high school, when I began to have the opportunity to use technology to support me with my school work. Lo and behold, I discovered that contrary to what I thought, I wasn’t dumb at all in fact, I just learned differently. My grades then started improving, and instead of C’s I was getting 80’s and 90’s. I graduated from high school as an honour roll student and then in university I graduated with distinction on the Dean’s Honours list. I’m certain that none of this would have been possible for me without technology. So having experienced for myself the impact that technology can have, not only on a student’s academic success but on their confidence and self-esteem too, I am so excited about how advancements in technology continue to bridge the gap between students with learning differences and their peers. I feel so privileged to be a part of these students’ journeys to empowered learning and discovering their true potential.

My Hero

I would say that my grandparents are my heroes. In their own unique ways, they are each inspirational and incredible human beings, whose characters I aspire to emulate

My Passion

My passion is supporting children with exceptionalities and those who experience academic, social or emotional challenges to build their sense of self-esteem and self-confidence so they can discover their true potential.

Favourite Food

I couldn’t live without cheese, but as a ‘junk-food junkie’ with a sweet tooth, cheesecake is my weakness!

Favourite Colour

My favourite colour is turquoise, but I also love green because it reminds me of nature.

Favourite Animals

This is a tough question, but I narrowed it down to dogs, elephants, goats, owls and polar bears.

Growing Up

I grew up as a middle child of three girls. I have many fond childhood memories of going to the cottage, camping, skiing, snowboarding and going for bike rides. Perhaps most memorable were our family trips; whether road-tripping to the east or west coasts or exploring other countries, my parents loved taking us travelling.

Family Time

These are my people (and dogs). They make me laugh every day and I love each one of them to pieces.

Summer Fun

Here I am wakeboarding at the cottage, where I love to spend time outdoors with my family in the summer.

More about me.

The best part about going to the cottage is sharing my love for nature with my two young daughters. We get to explore and encounter all kinds of wildlife in their natural habitats (loons, turkeys, owls, bats, foxes, bears, moose, salamanders, snakes…). We also like to enjoy activities like fishing, canoeing, boating, swimming and campfires.

“When overwhelmed, I remind myself to just put one foot in front of the other, or in other words, take the first small step toward the goal and then push forward, one step at a time.”
