I am delighted to be the new counsellor at Porter Street Elementary School. My role is to assist students with their social and emotional development. I will be servicing students through class visits, small group meetings and individual sessions. If you have any concerns regarding your child, I am available to meet virtually, in person (outside), or on the phone. I can best be reached at email@example.com and my days at Porter are Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
I will be writing a column which I call the Counselling Corner throughout the year. It will appear on the school website and will address general and common child related concerns which have come to my attention from the parent communities at schools I have worked at over the years.
Thank you for trusting us with your child during such extraordinary circumstances. It has been so great to see so many smiling welcoming eyes these past few weeks. Thank you for all you have done in preparing your child to be safe while at school. I am most impressed, grateful and humbled by your outstanding efforts. I look forward to getting to know you all!
Harriette Chang, School Counsellor
