Family Wellness Worker
Hello River Valley School Families and Young People!
My name is Lindsay Hill and I am deeply honoured, and thrilled to be the school's Family School Wellness Worker. I LOVE my job, I might be a bit biased, but I truly believe that I have the BEST job in the school.
I have been at RVS since February 2016, when I took over for the splendid Joy Lonsdale-Calkins, as she went on a maternity leave.
My role and responsibilities include; taking care of our school's brilliant minds and hearts. How lucky am I??? As a result, I do a lot of one-on-one work with our young people, and sometimes I even get to work with their wonderful families. I also, get to do presentations in classrooms, on a variety of topics, with a variety of grades. And did I mention, I love my job? I really, really do.
You know what? Being a parent is the hardest job in the world - I know - as I have 3 kids myself! I have a son, Kailuam, going into grade 4, a daughter Taya, going into grade 2, and my youngest son, Loek, is going into kindergarten. But we live in Cochrane, so unfortunately, they don't get to come to work with me ;-)
Sometimes, as a parent, you just need the reassurance that you're doing a great job, or a little advice here and there when something comes up, and you're just not quite sure on how to handle it. Let's face it, life sometimes deals up some pretty big curve balls; job loss, stress, fatigue, relationship changes, deaths in the family etc., these things happen, and when they do, we can talk about it. Family School Wellness services are confidential to you and your beautiful children. We get to work together to find solutions, to ease stresses, to figure things out, as best we can... and where necessary, I can connect you with additional help and supports as needed.
I look forward to connecting with you and your family.
