My name is Jane Pike. This year, I am sharing the counselling role at Lynn Valley Elementary with Jenny Simpson.
I love my work as a school counsellor because it allows me to connect with and support youth who are figuring out who they are and how they want to be in the world. I am passionate about working together with colleagues and families to create a safe, supportive, kind and peaceful community.
I am also part of the District Social Emotional Learning team this year and am excited about the emphasis our school and our district is placing on these types of skills – skills for life!
When I'm not working, I enjoy time with my family, both in town and off grid. I also like to 'hike' and 'bike', which may help you remember my name.
I look forward to working with my school community again this year.
I can be reached anytime at email@example.com, or by confidential voicemail 604-903-3444, ext 829941
Hello, my name is Jenny Simpson. I am the school counsellor at Lynn Valley, along with Ross Road Elementary.
I earned my Masters in Counselling
in January 2019, and then joined North Vancouver School District. I was
a high school teacher for 14 years and I took an education leave to
complete my Masters. I am a member of the BCACC.
In my degree I studied
trauma and post traumatic growth. I work in a strength-based and
collaborative approaches with my clients. I enjoy spending time hiking
with my dog, paddling or snowshoeing when I can.
I also volunteer my
time in my community garden and with Rainbow Refugees. I am happy to be
working with the students at both of my schools this year and learning
from my colleagues!
