I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your child's elementary school counselor. I am looking forward to educating and preparing the next generation of productive and healthy citizens.
As our first step in building a relationship, I would like to tell you a little about myself. I completed my Education Specialist in School Counseling from University of West Alabama and my Master's degree in School Counseling from Northern Illinois University. I also completed my Bachelor's degree in Health Administration and Health Education from University of Illinois. I have been a school counselor for ten years and absolutely love every minute of it.
I am here to support our students through a variety of ways. Some of the ways I will be supporting our students will be implementing a system wide Character Education program (Project Wisdom) and I will also be the PBIS Coordinator. I will be teaching developmental counseling lessons, working with students individually and/or in small groups. Another aspect of my role will be collaborating with teachers, administration, staff, families, and and stakeholders to ensure that we are creating a positive, safe, and effective learning community for our students.
I am excited to work together with your son/daughter! My goal is to create a positive and supportive environment conducive to learning and success. I respect our emphasis on strong community support and look forward to being an integral part of the whole school community. Please know that I will make every effort to ensure that your child receives as much personal assistance as possible to ensure his/her years here are successful.
Please feel to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns or to set up an appointment to meet with me; I am here to assist should you need me!
