As a school counselor, I love that I am able to offer students a place where they are able to freely express themselves and feel safe. The elementary school years are a fun time where students are beginning to develop academic self-concept, and confidence as learners. Moreover, it sets the tone for developing positive attitudes and necessary life skills that prepare them to become the next generation of workers, leaders, and decision-makers.
I have many responsibilities, as a school counselor, to include: academic support, goal setting, career awareness and exploration, understanding self, peer relationships, coping strategies, individual and small-group counseling, classroom guidance, one-on-one parent conferencing, and peer support; thus, ensuring a positive and solid foundation for future academic and personal/social success for all students.
I am extremely grateful to be a part of such an awesome team and I look forward to serving this community for many more years to come!
