Hi there! My name is Angie Durant and I am so excited to be joining the staff at Ecole Deer Meadow School!
I have been blessed to be part of the Family School Wellness Program since 2008. I have had the opportunity to work with students and their families within the communities of Innisfail, Spruce View, Sylvan Lake and Sundre. I have my BA in Psychology and have additional training in Attachment Theory.
My passion is supporting children, youth and their families through complex and challenging times. I believe a child's behaviour is how they communicate to the world when they do not have the words to express their feelings. We also know that when students are stressed and/or facing adversity, it affects their ability to reach their highest potential in school. The Family School Wellness Program is committed to supporting families and has four core values: Relationships, Caring, Empathy and Respect.
I am from a small town in British Columbia and have lived in Olds since 2004. I have a son who attends Ecole Olds High School and we enjoy travelling, the outdoors and anything involving water!
If you would like to learn more about the Family School Wellness Program and how it can support you and your family, please feel free to reach out.
