What specifically do counselors do?
School counselors provide educational, social and emotional support for students in a variety of ways to help them be successful. I visit classrooms regularly, provide small group sessions and visit with students individually as needed. I am also available to meet with parents and teachers for assistance and support. I provide referrals to community resources as needed.
Professional School Counselors provide a Comprehensive Guidance Program in their schools, which includes these four major areas:
Guidance Curriculum: Helps all students to develop skills in these areas in classroom or campus-wide activities:

Decision making, goal setting, planning, and problem solving
Responsive Services: Addresses individual student concerns in these areas:
Individual Planning: Guides students in setting goals and developing individual plans in:
System Support: Provides support activities and services in these areas:
Coordinating people and resources in the community to benefit students:
Lunch Bunch-kindergarten through 5th grade students are invited to join me in small groups for lunch during the school year. We talk about a variety of topics including what they like to do when they are not at school, favorite subjects, pets, or whatever they want to talk about, giving us a chance to get to know each other in a more informal setting.
