Madison Academy Elementary
Welcome to the Counselor Corner, the website for the Elementary Counseling Program at Madison Academy in Madison, Alabama! I have the joy of working with students through classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling. I also collaborate with school staff and parents in order to best meet the needs of students.
Classroom Guidance Lessons
I visit each classroom multiple times throughout the school year and have the chance to interact with every student during these lessons. Lessons typically last 20 minutes in length and cover topics such as school readiness skills, understanding feelings of self and others, problem solving skills, friendship skills, and study skills.
Small Group Counseling
Starting this Fall 2019, I will offer a variety of small groups to students who may benefit from spending some extra time developing academic, social, or emotional skills along with their peers, and to students who are coping with similar life situations. Groups can have anywhere from 3-12 members and usually meet once a week during lunch for several weeks. To see offerings and/or sign up your child, click here!
Some students can benefit from one-on-one counseling regarding academic, social, or emotional challenges. After a few visits if the issues are not resolving, it may be recommended that the student seeks an outside professional for more support.
