How will I work with your child?
I will be presenting grade level appropriate guidance lessons to all classrooms on a monthly basis. Topics include conflict resolution, anger management, friendship skills, having empathy for others, listening skills, communication and self discovery.I also facilitate small groups throughout the year for students who can benefit from some extra support or reinforcement. Topics include: friendship skills, anger management, divorce, study skills, grief, and focusing in the classroom.In addition, I work with students individually based on need and parent/teacher recommendations. When we work together we might:
- Sit and talk
- Write and draw
- Read a book
- Talk with other Students who are present
- Play games that help us learn about ourselves and others
- Plan ways to solve problems
As your school counselor, I am here to support your child and enhance his/her learning experience in any way I can. Please let me know if I can ever assist you in any way. I look forward to working with you and your child.
