Hilary Astolfi, Resident Teacher Advisor
Hilary has been with Perfect Attendance from day one, back in September 2014, when she piloted an attendance incentive with her students.  She had seen how school absences can not only influence a child’s academic achievement, but also social interactions.  Attendance at school matters!
 
Hilary’s involvement grew in 2015 when she was a member of a teacher advisory board that helped shape Perfect Attendance’s policies and awards.  She continues to serve as resident teacher, guiding the board through changes and has helped to launch new initiatives.
 
Hilary has a BA and a BEd, as well having begun her Master’s Degree in School Administration.  She has worked for nine years as an elementary teacher, and is excited to help Perfect Attendance grow in Calgary.  She has seen first hand how Perfect Attendance has motivated students and increased their presence, punctuality, and confidence in the classroom.
