To prepare for my profile I took some time to reflect on my eight years at Caroline Chisholm Catholic College. Throughout this time I have tried to ensure that each student feels safe, valued, and respected through positive relationships with them. Being a reflective practitioner means that I am aware that not every student has felt this way. As a House Coordinator I have a responsibility to celebrate our students’ many successes, but also challenge them when their choices do not align with our College values or expectations. When things do not go as planned, we often ask our students to reflect on their choices and consider other perspectives; to develop their empathy and social thinking.

To assist students to improve their ability to manage their emotions, to develop their resiliency, and to strengthen their school engagement, I use a variety of 5-10 minute activities in some of my classes. These activities include guided meditation and mindfulness activities, show and tell, the development of emotional literacy, and elements of Mental Health First Aid.
