School Counselors are particularly important because they have the ability to allow students to have a “non-graded” relationship with an adult. Unlike teachers, school counselors don’t give grades and they don’t impose discipline like administrators. The school counseling function is all about relationships. As the counselor, I teach guidance lessons related to personal/social, academic and career topics. Many of the lessons are connected to our character education program, Character Under Construction. I also meet with children individually at either the child, teacher, or parent’s request. I work with small groups of students who may be dealing with a life change. (divorce, death, etc…) I welcome your phone calls anytime. I hope you have a great year at MES!
