Many of us remember a guidance counselor from our school years, but the role of the school counselor, especially at the elementary level, has changed. These days, the school counselor divides her time among many areas in support of all students. Primarily, the elementary counselor focuses on individual and small group counseling, teaching developmental lessons in the classroom, and collaborating with parents, staff, and community members.
My goal is to provide a school counseling program that is comprehensive in scope (reaching as many students as possible), preventative in design (preventing problems versus dealing with them after they happen), and developmental in nature (always changing based on the needs of our students and families).
