School Counseling

What does a school counselor do?
The role of the elementary counselor is to help students learn and develop to their highest potential, socially, emotionally, and academically. There are so many situations that interfere with a child's learning process. I am here to help students work through those issues. I provide students with early interventions as well as preventative strategies so that All students benefit.
