Family School Liaison Coordinator

Greetings Everyone!
My name is Tara Burdock and I am the Family School Liaison Counselor (FSLC) for the Lobstick area. I cover Niton Central School, Fulham School, and Wildwood School. My role is to support the students in one on one sessions as well as providing families with any resources they may need to aid their children in becoming the best they can be!

My educational background is in social work. Currently, I hold a Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Calgary. I discovered my passion for working with children and youth while working and volunteering my time with a not-for-profit foundation as well as Edson Youth Interagency. The opportunity to be the Family School Liaison Counsellor for not one but, three schools/communities is fantastic!

I strongly value creating a safe and non-judgmental space for children to feel at ease and comfortable during their sessions with me. I consider myself a 'life long learner' and value the continuum of personal development. I hope to bring as many skills forward from my education as possible in my initiative to help children build the strategies they need to be successful and confident in their future endeavours.

I look forward to seeing all staff, students, and families as we return to School for the 2022/23 school year.
Expect to see me in:
Wildwood School on Mondays and Thursdays,
Niton Central School on Tuesdays and Fridays,
and at Fulham on Wednesdays.
