Aboriginal Advocate

dreamcatcher.jpgHello, my name is Lisa Middleton and I am thrilled to be at Casorso Elementary as your Aboriginal Student Advocate.  I have worked in the Aboriginal Program for the past ten years, and I look forward to seeing you all again and meeting my new families.

My role as an Aboriginal Student Advocate is to assist and support students and families.  I will be touching base with students of Aboriginal Ancestry periodically throughout the year.  This may include:

  • Ensuring students remain in school and graduate
  • Increasing attendance and lessening tardiness if problem exists
  • Academic and personal/behavior goal setting, self-esteem, peer interaction
  • Motivating, maintaining and celebrating your child's success
  • Encouraging students to participate in cultural learning events, sports, art projects, and field trips. (Bannock making, crafts, drumming circles)
  • Problem solving issues and concerns regarding school and home
  • Encouraging Parental/Guardian involvement and support
  • Increasing access to resources available from our Aboriginal Education Program

My hours are: Mondays - Fridays 8:30am - 3:30pm

My goal is to see that every one of our students reaches his or her full potential and has a very positive experience at Casorso Elementary.  Please feel free to contact me at any time.

​All my Relations,

Lisa Middleton
