Hello, my name is Shannon Baldwin and I am the Lead staff for the High School program at Applewood Academy. I grew up in Prince Edward County and have spent most of my adult life in and around the Quinte area.
I graduated from Loyalist College in 2001 with a diploma from the Developmental Service Worker program. After graduating, I began working at Bayfield Treatment Centre. I worked there for almost 15 years starting as a CYW in the Residential Program and working my way up to a Residential Program Lead staff and then to a Case Manager. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the youth at Bayfield, building positive relationships through the facilitation of the therapeutic modalities of the programs.
I came to work at Applewood Academy full-time in September 2016. During my time at Applewood, I have found that the freedom provided by the alternative learning environment has provided me with the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. It has allowed me to foster positive relationships with the students and facilitate them becoming active participants in the learning process.
I look forward to helping your children develop positive social relationships within the school and community setting, creating the opportunity for a new and improved outlook on their experience within the educational milieu.
