My name is Ms. Morgan Odland and I am a Community LINK Student Support Worker in the Windermere Zone. My job is to provide additional supports to children in a school setting. Some of the ways I can support children are:
- Bringing a child out of the classroom for a 'brain break' that can look like: going outside for a walk around the school grounds, reading a book together, or just a quick chat.
- Helping children develop strong relationships with positive role models and mentors outside of the family.
- Intervening during crisis situations with school-based team and/or community agencies and determines, develops, and implements appropriate strategies.
- Getting groups together to provide children with a safe space to learn about social skills, friendships, nutrition, problem-solving, and to have fun together! In the past, these groups have also explored how to control emotions and to understand other people's perspectives, but in a very fun way!
I am looking forward to working with your child and would love to hear your input if there are specific things that I may be able to help with, or any ideas that you may have for me!
