Welcome to Guidance! I am excited to be working in Jackson this year and am looking forward to a great year with your students. Guidance programming in Jackson is designed to be comprehensive in nature, covering the needs of all students and families by providing a range of services including classroom lessons, small groups, individual meetings, crisis intervention and referrals. The guidance program also serves as a resource for families looking for assistance with academic, behavioral, financial or social concerns.
Classroom lessons are based on the SAU 9 elementary guidance curriculum, which addresses the social, personal, academic and career-based needs of students. Specifically, I will be covering the following topics this school year:
K-1 – mindfulness, emotions, friendship skills, personal safety, diversity and tolerance and listening skills
2-3 – self-regulation, cooperation, problem-solving, bullying, communication and career awareness
4-5 – goal-setting, bullying, diversity, decision-making, stress management and career awareness
6 - organizational skills, peer pressure and bullying, problem-solving, stress management, substance use and career awareness.
Please contact me if I can be of assistance at 383- 6861 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
