SCHOOL COUNSELLOR

My name is Michelle Smith and I am thrilled to be part of the Fort Christian team as the School Counsellor and Special Needs Facilitator for a fourth year.

 

I have been employed with Elk Island Public Schools since 1999 as a teacher in Grades 1, 2, 4 and 6. In 2011, I completed a Masters degree in Educational Psychology at the University of Alberta, with a specialization in School Counselling, and I am currently a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists.

 

My role at the school is to support student learning by helping students to thrive emotionally, socially, spiritually and academically. I work collaboratively with administrators, teachers, parents and students to establish a safe and caring school environment in which children and youth can learn to the best of their ability. I also support parents and families by providing resources and referrals to community supports and agencies as needed.
