Family Wellness Worker
Phone: (403) 586-8277- cell
My complete name is Tane Skotheim and, as I tell the students, my last name is definitely more difficult than my first one so most of the students just call me “Tane”! I have had the great privilege of working at OHS for several years and I am constantly impressed and often amazed at the great ideas and hard work that come from students, staff and the families of Olds. During my employment history, I have had the opportunity to work in various schools and Olds High is definitely one of the best!
As the Family Wellness worker, my job is to support students and their families as they face the many challenges of living together in a healthy way! In addition to my role as the Family Wellness Worker here, I am also involved in coordinating the Mentoring project and acting as the staff advisor for the OHS Interact Club. These are two programs I enjoy spending time with and getting to know students on another level.
On a personal note, I live in Didsbury with my husband. Both our son and daughter are currently attending university in Calgary. I love any activity when all four of us are able to spend time together and am often sad at how infrequently that happens as they get older! I really do enjoy working with teenagers and I value the trust they have placed in me during our conversations. I enjoy the positive attitudes and the great relationships I have formed during my time at OHS.
