Mrs. Kaitlyn McAndrew,
Welcome to Counseling with Mrs. McAndrew!
My role as a counselor is to provide students and staff at St. Bartholomew School with extra support outside of the classroom.
As a counselor, I meet with students individually on an as-needed basis. There are a variety of problems that children face during their school careers. Here are some of the topics that may be addressed during counseling this year:
- Anger Management
- ADHD and Attention Issues
- Decision-Making Skills and Impulsivity
- Communication Skills
- Positive Relationships with Peers
- Emotional Language Skills
- Behavior Modification
- Any Special Needs in the Classroom
Counseling is most effective when the parent/guardian is involved! I would love to hear from you about any concerns or input you have about your child! Currently, email is the best way to reach me - firstname.lastname@example.org
As a school counselor, a big part of my job is to ensure the safety and security of your children. It is my legal responsibility to report to you and the proper authorities if a child reports that they are going to hurt themselves, hurt someone else, or someone is hurting them.
