Counselor Corner

School counselors are vital to students' mental health and development, many of whom experience difficulties at home and in the classroom. As the school counselor, I am responsible for removing any barrier that may prevent a student from receiving their education.

Some of my other duties include:

      Advises and counsels students regarding academic, educational, and short-term social and emotional problems.

      Provides individual student planning and responsive services to support students and their families regarding academic matters.

      Teaches guidance classes and provides guidance counseling to students through planned activities in small group or classroom settings to convey educational, social, and important school information.

      Provides feedback and recommends appropriate action and solutions to individual student’s academic and educational needs and abilities.

      Participates on a Student Success Team, identifies students who may need targeted or intensive services, and coordinates with behavioral health specialists.

      Assists students/parents in understanding school policies and procedures.

      Provide brief counseling to address social and emotional concerns and appropriately refer students to behavioral health specialists.

I look forward to working with all parents, students, and stakeholders to ensure your child graduates college and career ready!
