What is a professional school counselor?

Greetings from DAC!

Thanks for looking around my Counselor:Connect page. I am in my eighth year being a school counselor in Itawamba County Schools. I love working with the students and helping them to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally. Please take a moment to look through the programs being implemented through my counseling program, and check back frequently for updated materials and resources.

In 2018, we implemented PBIS into our school. It has been an outstanding asset within our school. Its purpose is to reward students' good behavior and use positive student intervention to help eliminate the negative behaviors within our school.

For 3rd-5th graders, it is my goal to help them appreciate each other by nominating and recognizing other students within the 3rd-5th grades for their unique talents and abilities.
