My name is Jessica Barlow and this upcoming school year will be my thirteenth year as Liberty's School Counselor. Liberty Elementary’s school counseling program offers many resources and tools for your child’s academic and emotional needs. School-wide, your child will receive character education lessons that are based on our “7 Habits for Becoming a Liberty Leader”. These lessons are taught throughout the school year in the classroom.
The school counseling program offers more than just guidance lessons. If your child needs more one-on-one guidance to learn specific skills, small group sessions are held in my office to teach students in different areas. The areas that are addressed in small groups are feeling management, social skills, focusing/impulse control, and character education. These groups are a fun way for children to express themselves and to learn different skills to help them socially and emotionally. If you would like your child to participate in these groups please contact me and we will get them in the right group.
Some students have other areas of need that would be better provided individually. I provide individual counseling sessions for students with all types of different needs. I can also assist parents with resources and referral information if a student needs to be referred to an outside counseling agency for more intensive counseling.
At Liberty, we want our parents to know that we are here to help in any way we can. If you need resources to help your child or family we can provide those to you. You can contact me through email, phone, or class dojo and I will gladly assist you in any way I can.
