My duties consist of classroom guidance, group counseling, and individual counseling. I am in each classroom once a week. My curriculum consists of many different areas including: Character education, bullying prevention, friendship, conflict resolution, career education, and study skills, along with other topics.
Small groups are added as needed. I have had many friendship groups, groups for children dealing with divorce, and behavior modification.
Individually, I meet with students for a variety of reasons. Students can request to see me, teachers refer students, or parents can request that I talk to their child. If you would like me to meet with your child, please contact me.
