Words from my References

"Mylae has a keen ability to move from an idea to reality. When she undertook the challenge to put together a community computer training program in a short period of time, she developed a unique experience with positive results for all students." - Susan Church, Blue Sky Net Economic Growth Corporation General Manager

"Both when she was Practice Teaching in one of my former schools, and now in her work here at Nipissing, I have consistently seen Mylae Costello's energy, her drive for superior performance and her exceptional skill in dealing with the variety of personalities of others.  She is very much a 'quick-learner'." - Barlow Patten, Former Near North District School Board Principal

"This is wonderful! (Wireless Wednesdays, which turned into eTIP) I am so glad that Mylae is able to do this – I think she has started a really good initiative – it will certainly make a difference for teachers and for our students. I am glad this has been so well received!" - Jane Henderson, Near North District School Board
