What does the school counselor do?

As school counselor, I work mostly with students in whole group through weekly classroom guidance activities and lessons. Along with the state mandated standards, all students in grades K-3rd will have additional concepts they will be taught. This is accomplished through the
 7 Habits of Happy Kids.

* Habit #1: Be Proactive
*Habit #2: Begin with the End in Mind
*Habit #3: Put First Things First
*Habit #4: Think Win-Win
*Habit #5: Seek First to Understand Then to Be Understood
*Habit #6: Synergize
*Habit #7: Sharpen  the Saw
