Degrees and Certifications:
Clay Elementary School Counseling Program
Classroom lessons: All classrooms will have lessons with me throughout the school year. Topics may include self, family, rules, manners, getting along, bullying, cooperation, careers, problem-solving, feelings, and community.
Small groups: Small groups are offered throughout the year as the need arises. The groups may focus on study skills, friendship, anger management, loss, changing families or other topics that teachers and parents ask for.
I see students individually to help with short-term issues affecting their ability to learn in class. If longer-term counseling is indicated, I can refer parents to outside agencies or therapists.
Parents are welcome to call at any time about student concerns.
I work on other school committees and activities, helping with events such as Red Ribbon Week, fifth-grade recognition, state-wide testing, and our continuous improvement plan.
