Heather AveryDirector: Guidance and Learning, Lakefield College School
I have worked in education most of my life, helping students from middle school to graduate school to achieve their goals and dreams.
It’s been an honour and an inspiration to help young women and men believe in their abilities, understand their potential, learn how to learn—and then fly.
Most recently, I have come to believe deeply that without basic good health—sleep, nutrition, exercise, self-care—teens and young adults will struggle to learn and be their best.
Helping students and schools to understand that good health is the foundation for learning and achievement has become, for me, a vocation.
