Who Is Mrs. Klassen?

Before becoming a counsellor I was an elementary school teacher. As I grew as a teacher I discovered my passion for the development of each individual child - helping them discover their own unique gifts, strengths and contributions.  In February 2014 I graduated with a Masters degree in Education in Counselling Psychology from the University of Manitoba.  I am also certified with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.  I am entering my tenth year of school counselling and my sixth year at Elmdale (where I attended school for grades K-3!). I am particularly passionate about the early years grades and the personal and social development that takes place at that time of life.  

I live in Steinbach with my husband and two kids (both in middle school). In my spare time I like to read, cook, spend time with friends, and walk with our dog, Daisy.
