My name is Sonya Quinlan‐Jacob and I am the school counsellor. At the school everyone knows me as Mrs. Jacob. I have been counselling children, teens, and families in a number of Calgary schools for the past five years. I have a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education from St. Thomas University. I was a teacher for a number of years before pursuing my Masters. I have a Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality from St. Stephen’s College and I am a registered counsellor with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association. Working with children, teens, and families to make positive changes in their lives is something I am passionate about; it has been the focus of my professional career. I am delighted to be working with the students, families and staff at Almadina Language Charter Academy.
