As the school counselors it is our privilege to help support
the social, emotional and academic growth of students. We also serve as a resource for families on a
variety of issues. As the counselor we work with students and staff
and families in a variety of ways.
Classroom Guidance: We visit each classroom to teach lessons about
such topics as friendship, feelings, goal setting, bullying, conflict
resolution, career awareness and study skills.
Individual/Small Group Counseling: We meet with individual and small groups of
students on an as needed basis to address academic, social or emotional issues. This may involve assistance with organizational
skills, friendship issues, loss, conflict resolution, self-esteem or personal
Responsive Counseling: We address immediate needs of children or
families who may be experiencing a particular crisis. We will conference with parents and also serve as a
resource for programs in the community.
Lunch Bunch: We meet with students during their
lunch or recess time. This is an
informal opportunity for students to get together with us and other students to
visit and interact. Developing
relationships is an important part of encouraging student success and
I am a member of the School Leadership Team and School
Committee. I am often involved in Educational Management Team Meetings (EMTS), 504
Meetings, IEP Meetings and parent conferences.
Family Support: We work with outside agencies to
coordinate and provide services for our students and their families. These include such things as the Smart Sack
Program and Holiday Giving Program.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any
questions or concerns, We look forward to working with your children and you
