Welcome to MMH Learning Commons
Welcome back everyone!
This year is going to look different for all of us but I will try to get books to all of you to read in the classroom. We need to keep books at school for now. If there is something you would like to read, you can put it on hold online or ask your teacher.
Check out the Power Point to see how to access Destiny from home.
Learning Commons/Library Facilitator: Ms. Sarah Renner
I’m Michelle McFadzen, the Teacher-Counsellor at Mike Mountain Horse. I have both a teaching degree and a Masters in Counselling, which means I am qualified to both teach and counsel students. I have had the privilege of being in the Teacher-Counsellor position for 12 years, supporting students, families and staff in the area of wellness.
Lethbridge School District understands the importance of social emotional wellness and the impact it has on learning therefore has developed a structure that provides Universal, Targeted, and Individual Supports. This ensures that all students have wellness embedded into their programming. This programing may be in the form of wellness lessons in the classroom, targeted groups or one on one brief solution focused counselling.
It is my hope that the information you find in this section is helpful in supporting you and your child in the area of mental wellness.
Learning Support Teacher
My name is Nicole Baker, and I am so, so fortunate to be the Learning Support Teacher at Mike Mountain Horse Elementary School. I have twenty years of teaching experience in inclusive learning environments. In addition to my degrees in psychology and education, I have done a significant amount of training in behaviour support, learning challenges, medical conditions such as autism, ADHD and FASD, as well as trauma, attachment and the developmental paradigm. The most important thing to know about me is that I absolutely LOVE our students and the work I am privileged to spend my days doing.
At MMH my role is never the same two days in a row, which is amazing! I consult with staff to support best practices in inclusive education for all our students. I complete observations and assessments with students, work with staff and students to determine and develop lagging skills in a variety of areas and liaise with division and community resources. I provide universal programming, small group or 1:1 teaching on a variety of topics and create resources to support inclusive programming. I also schedule and facilitate learning team meetings with families and support people from the school division and community services. If parents ever have questions or concerns about their child’s learning or development, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learning Support Teacher- English Language Learners
Hi! My name is Shelby Armstrong. I am so excited to be back at MMH this year! My new role is a Learning Support Teacher for our English Language Learners. I prepare lessons and activities that will help students learn to read, write, speak, and understand English. I also work closely with classroom teachers to provide materials and resources that may benefit our students who are learning English. I look forward to another great year here at MMH!
