About the Author

Lynne Watts

Wyatt the Wonder Dog Books and More is a series designed to grow young leaders. It is particularly useful for busy dedicated elementary school counselors who teach lessons in leadership, community and problem solving. Children as well as adults face problems every day. Young children are creative, enthusiastic and eager to learn. Through the Wyatt stories they can become successful problem solvers and leaders in their everyday lives.

Children learn best through the medium of story and all of the Wyatt picture books are designed to be stories that are easy to follow grab ‘n go lessons. The Elementary School Counselor Book of Lesson Plans provides a whole year of carefully crafted lessons so that counselors can teach community and leadership skills. The Whole Hearted Journal is a ready to go small group format for developing growth mindset and community.

As a school counselor for twenty years in Canton, Georgia, I helped hundreds of students solve problems much like the ones that Wyatt solves in the books. Before starting my own writing and coaching business, I worked as an addiction counselor and a rehab counselor as well as a school counselor. Today as a certified DISC trainer and business coach I help clients create work they can love so they can do work that matters. I provide individual coaching and staff training for schools and businesses in personality style, crucial conversations and creating a positive environment.
