Hello, my name is Kelly Harris and I am the
school counsellor at Capilano and Westview Elementary Schools. In my role as a
counsellor I am passionate about helping teachers, parents and the students
themselves understand how supporting the Social and Emotional aspects of child
development can lead to improved learning outcomes and school enjoyment. I also
take an avid interest in helping our school community understand how Trauma
Informed approaches can help all students to be successful learners as well as
fostering a compassionate understanding of challenging behaviours. In my spare
time I love to hike on the mountain trails with my golden retriever “Nugget”
and cheer on my two teenage boys in their sporting endeavours. I look forward
to working with the school community.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
