Finding ways to let our students in our school community know they can connect and I am here to help.
As I begin my year virtually , I look forward to working with students and staff. I have wanted to contribute in a positive way in this pandemic, so as I navigate around what I think will be most helpful, I hope you too will contribute ideas and resources that will help others.

It is always a good day to get outside for a walk. Today I walked about five hours breathing in the fresh air letting the sunny Alberta skies shine upon my face. When you can get outdoors do so. It’s good for your mental and physical health. It’s always a good day when you make the effort to get outside especially gratifying when you are in a pandemic .
Think of your own ideas and make your own KINDNESS calendar.

When tired STOP . It’s OK we are in a pandemic.
As I begin this journey of virtual school counselling , there is so much to learn. Thanks to all who are learning along with me.
Join in the conversation.
As I think about all the teachers across the world , I recognize how tired they must be, but I admire their dedication so much. I know those not in education have NO idea of the tireless work you do and how especially difficult it is in a pandemic.
Our children are so fortunate. I wish the world really understood, they’d be more empathetic and grateful.
I am so grateful to all my American colleagues who I can count on to help me at anytime. This year as I start part time in an online High School half time , I will be collaborating with my American colleagues who are also counselling virtually. Thanks to Cynthia Morton @c_morton and Sam Hill @zillysam for connecting with me and setting up an ongoing connection with my colleagues. We will stay connected this year as we navigate the virtual world of School Counselling together. I am grateful for you and all in #scchat who share freely. Together we are better.
