Girlie

Hi, I’m Girlie Osea, married with a 16 year old step son and currently residing in the West side of Saskatoon. I was an elementary teacher in the Philippines for almost 10 years handling grade 1 and preschool. I’ve been here in Canada since November 2014. I find this place a very cold one with warm hearted people. My first job is a crew staff in McDonalds new my place.

I love doing these things aside from teaching: cooking, working on the computer such as Adobe Photoshop, Media player, Microsoft offices, researching and surfing the net. As of now, I’m working here in Parents’ Child Development Co-operative as a full-time staff and looking forward to making friendships and memories with the kids, staff and parents.
