Jennifer KlassenNOTE: Since this article was published, Jennifer Klassen has accepted a new position in the private sector.

Tenure with WECDSB
 13 years as a Psychometrist, Psychologist, and Mental Health Lead. 

What do you do to help students? As the Mental Health lead, Ms. Klassen educates teachers on mental health and mental illness by speaking about the topic positively. While working with different schools, Ms. Klassen helps develop mental health strategies that can be implemented in schools to assist students. Helping students and their families work with the school to plan accommodations around more serious mental health needs is also a very important aspect of Ms. Klassen's job. Writing monthly newsletters on topics such as bullying, sleep, and mental health is a way for Ms. Klassen to communicate with parents/guardians and inform them of things happening within school that could affect your child. 

What keeps you motivated?
 Knowing that kids and teenagers today have so much to offer the world, as well as seeing what these young people can accomplish with the circumstances they are given. 

What do you love most about your job? Working with kids to improve or maintain their overall mental health.

Jen has moved into a new role outside of the WECDSB and we wish her the best of luck.
