My name is Pam Garner and I am the Teacher Counsellor at GS Lakie. I have had a long and varied teaching career. This is my 28th year with the District! I have taught grades 1,2,5,6,7 and K & E. I completed my Masters in 2004. The District moved to having a teacher counsellor in each middle and high school. This has given me another rich opportunity to connect with students and their familes.
Our counselling team is multi-faceted in that we offer a continuum of preventative, developmental, remedial and intervention services and help facilitate referrals to community resources. My job is to assist the team in responding to the emotional, social, intellectual and academic needs of all students in a developmentally- appropriate manner. I work very closely with the Administration team to facilitate the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of comprehensive counselling programs.
I believe the counselling team is an integral part of the school. I love what I do and I love working at Lakie.
