Mrs. McKendry was a life changer for my son who had trouble adapting to a new environment. He moved from the primary school to Stinson elementary during a remodel. The change of schools and the construction frightened him. Mrs. McKendry would check in on my son throughout the day. She would make it a point to help him feel at ease. Sometimes it is easy to ignore or minimize a child’s anxiety, Mrs. McKendry definitely puts her whole heart into the kids and not just the ones who struggle. My oldest son also had Mrs. McKendry as a school counselor and although he did not have anxiety, she took the time to chat with him and make him feel as though he could talk to her if he needed to.
