My name is Jen Day and I am so excited to be the new Teacher Counsellor at General Stewart Elementary School. After teaching for several years I realized that, as much as I cared about student learning, I was very drawn to helping students cope with emotional issues and life circumstances. In order to better equip myself for that role I attained a Master of Counselling from the U of L.
I look forward to meeting each student during times of Universal Programming. This year we will learn how emotions affect the brain and coping skills for stressful situations. We will also focus on ways to increase positive emotions and how they are connected to gratitude and meaningful relationships.
I want to extend you a warm invitation to contact me via email if you’d like me to provide individual support to your child. I would love to meet with you and discuss ways I can help.
Warmest wishes on a new year!
