Hello and welcome to Counselor's Corner.
My role as an elementary guidance counselor is to assist in:
*personal/social skill development
I work with students:
Some topics frequently discussed with the counselor are:
* academic success * study skills * test-taking strategies
* appropriate school behavior * problem-solving * decision-making * conflict resolution * self-esteem issues * school rules and safety * divorce issues * grief
Confidentiality is vital in my role as a school counselor. Students need to feel comfortable to talk with me knowing that I will not discuss what we talked about with anyone else. Therefore, I do not call parents when I meet with a child individually unless there is a safety issue involved. In that case, I will alert the parents, school administration, or others as necessary. I do request parent permission for a child to meet with me in a small group meeting for any skill development. If you wish your child to participate in a small group for specific skill building, please contact me or the child’s teacher. Classroom teachers have the permission forms for students to participate in group counseling activities.
I look forward to working with all of you. Please feel free to stop by, call, or email me at the school.
