Classroom Counseling 2018-2019

Welcome students and parents to the 2018-19 school year!

Once again this year I will be working just in the High School building full time. This year I will be meeting in the classroom with the 7th graders each day. I will be teaching them the "Owning Up" curriculum. The curriculum is authored by Rosalind Wiseman and deals with empowering adolescents to confront social cruelty, bullying and In justice.

New this year I will be teaching the "Positive Selves curriculum" and we will also be using "RUReady ND" for career exploration. I am looking forward to this challenge and feel it will be a valuable experience for our students.

I also provide K-12 counseling services to the Spruce Lane Hutterite Colony School near Blanchard ND. The Spruce Lane School currently has 5 high school students and 7 students in grades K-8.
