Mr. Pynn

Hello Herons Crossing Families! I am the Child Development Advisor (CDA) at Herons Crossing School.

My background includes working in schools for about seventeen years in roles including School Support Worker for a social/emotional alternate school, CDA for a middle school, and now a CDA for my third year at Herons Crossing School.

I believe “kids do well if they can.” Children want to succeed. My role is to collaborate with students referred to me in the areas of social, emotional, and mental health to help increase success in one or more of these areas. This could look like individual, group, classroom, and/or school-wide support in the moment or more intensively over a long period of time. I believe in collaborating with parents, students, staff, and when necessary, outside agencies for ultimate success.

I moved to Alberta about six years ago from a town in British Columbia. In my down time I enjoy hiking, skiing, working out, and spending time with family and friends. I have two children, a boy and a girl. We recently added a puppy to our family and she is keeping us busy!

Areas of support:

  • Friendship Skills
  • Conflict resolution and mediation
  • Collaborative Problem Solving
  • Coping with family changes
  • Family support and referrals
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Anger Management
  • Loss and Grief
  • Increasing self-esteem
  • Resiliency building
  • Preventative programming for students at risk
  • Social skills
  • Bully proofing
  • Leadership
