As Kent Center School's Home-School Liaison, I work closely with staff members and parents to help support students' social and emotional well-being both at school and at home. I provide short-term individual counseling for students as well as referrals to outside counseling agencies. In addition, I provide whole group social skills lessons through the use of the Courage to Care curriculum for grades 1 and 2, and the Second Step curriculum for grades 3 through 7. I also work with students in grades 6 through 8 on creating both short and long term academic and personal goals, as well as explore their inherent strengths and interests through a new, state-mandated program called Student Success Planning (SSP).
Finally, I serve as advisor for the Student Leadership Council, which consists of a group of student leaders who organize a variety of school and community-wide projects and events throughout the school year.
