Hello, my name is Jenny Simpson. I am the school counsellor at Ross Road, along with Lynn Valley 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!
