School Counselor

  • Our children live in a time of rapid growth and change. They face unique and diverse challenges that impact their self-concept, academic achievement, and social and emotional competence.

    • Managing standardized testing
    • Conducting classroom lessons for Second Step , a curriculum-based program published by the Committee for Children that supports our Character Education Program
    • Conducting admissions screening tests and interviews
    • Creating action plans for student success
    • Observing student behavior and academic progress
    • Assisting students to find strategies to help them become more successful or to manage behavior
  • Our school counselor is caring and nurturing. Students are welcome to meet with her individually or meet in small groups to:
    • cope with events and transitions in their lives
    • develop study skills
    • develop social skills
    • select career paths
    • make healthy choices
