Hello, my name is Sandra Congdon. I am at Highlands Elementary and Queensbury Elementary
(sharing the counselling role with Laurel Whatley for Term 1). I value the diversity of my role including
working directly with students - individually and within the classroom;
advocating on behalf of students and families, collaborating and consulting
with teachers, administrators and parents and working as part of a team to
enhance student learning and school climate. A focus for me is the development
and implementation of classroom personal safety programs (Let’s Talk, Strong
Bodies Safe Kids, Kids in the Know) and prevention programs (Second Step, Zones
of Regulation). When I am not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors
with family and friends, gardening and travel. I look forward to working with the school community. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
