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.
