Hello and welcome back to school! I truly enjoy my position as elementary counselor and look forward to a great school year. This year, elementary students are focusing on becoming better leaders. I will consistently incorporate the 7 habits of highly effective leaders into classroom guidance activities. The Leader in Me is a program based on the 7 habits by Stephen and Sean Covey. These 7 habits are essential skills for children and adults. I had the opportunity to visit a Leader in Me school and was amazed by the atmosphere and the student desire to lead. The program components are nothing new to Woodland staff; however, converting existing practices to the 7 habit language will enhance leadership skills and is critical in preparing students to become responsible adults. We are going to honor our 'Leaders of the Month' (previously Good Citizens) on the first Friday of every month with a morning assembly.

Bully awareness and drug prevention are key components of my guidance curriculum during the month of October. I encourage students to wear blue on Monday, October 1st to show support for World Day of Bullying Prevention.

I am so grateful for Woodland Elementary and all the great things happening for our kids! Please visit my webpage for information, announcements, and classroom guidance schedule:
