This website is for students, teachers and parents. It not only allows us to remain connected, but helps me to provide you with some incredible resources. Things have changed since I was a kid and I try to stay up to date with all the new trends to give you all the good, the bad and the ugly of it all.



September is National
Good Manners Month
.

As with many skills taught during childhood years, manners can be instilled early too. Manners include both simple forms of etiquette and courtesy, but also teach responsibility, respectfulness, kindness and more.






Where do you begin? Children learn from their closest role models — their parents, guardians and other family members. You can teach them by your actions, then talk through why you did such and give them ongoing opportunities to practice themselves!  
  • Holding the door open for others shows your helpfulness. 
  • Instilling table manners, like chewing with your mouth closed, using napkins and keeping elbows off the table, displays respect and responsibility.
  • Apologizing to others for your misdoings shows kindness for people’s feelings.
  • Saying hello and smiling at others displays friendliness.
  • Removing cell phones and other digital devices during family time teaches respect and care for time with others.
  • Saying “please” and “thank you” demonstrates gratitude.



As a School Counselor, I perform the following roles in order to promote positive development in academic, career, and personal/social interactions:
