What Are School Counselors?

Elementary school counselors are educators uniquely trained in child development, learning strategies, self-management, and social skills, who understand and promote success for today’s diverse students. They implement a program that provides education, prevention, and intervention activities, which are integrated into all aspects of children’s lives. The program teaches knowledge, attitudes, and skills students need to acquire in academic, career, and social/emotional development, which serve as the foundation for future success.

Welcome to the Elementary School Counseling Website!  Above you can find the contact information for all of the elementary counselors in the Medina City Schools District.

Classroom Guidance Lessons

Classroom lessons are developed in collaboration with grade-level teachers depending on classroom needs.   Lessons typically last 30 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

On occasion, small groups are offered 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.  

Individual Counseling

Some students can benefit from one-on-one counseling regarding academic, social, or emotional challenges. However, it is important to note that the school counselors do not provide long-term therapy for individual students and counselors may refer to a clinical counselor who can develop goals specific to your student.
