I will be visiting each class once a month. These lessons will focus on character and social skills. The lessons are focused on working with students in the following areas: personal, interpersonal, health, career, and academic.
In September, I wlll be visiting each classroom for the 1st time. In Kindergarten, we will learn "What is a school counselor?". In 1st and 2nd grades, we will talk about a school counselor, but we will also talk about respect and how we treat others. In 3rd-5th grade, we will focus on respect and responsibility and talk about why it's important to have and follow rules. We will read the book "What if Everybody Did That" by Ellen Javernick.
In October, I ran a class meeting with all of the grade levels. Class meetings are a great way to build a positive classroom environment. All classes will be holding class meetings throughout the school year.
If you ever have a questions about a lesson, please feel free to email or call.
Small groups will start towards the end of September. If you would like your child to participate in a group, please email or call.
Some groups that I run regularly are: social skills, frienship, grief, changing families, and anger.
