Ms. Elly Mae Boonstra

I work in the Educational Support Services of Carver as a Special Education Assistant. I have worked in the John Knox and Carver community for the past 16 years. Before that, I was a preschool teacher, and director of a daycare center.

My credentials include having the designation of Registered Professional Counselor and I am also a Registrant Counselor with the Canadian College of Professional Counselors and Psychotherapists. My areas of expertise are in Crisis and Trauma counseling, and Child and Family Counseling.

Accompanying me to school most days, is my dear little companion and best friend, Mr. Darcy, our own Carver mascot. His credentials include having the Designation of Certified St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog, Mr. Darcy and I give back to our community of Maple Ridge in an Extended Care Facility, and in a Rehab/Community Outreach Program.

I look forward to connecting with students and families in our Carver Community.
