Many of you may not have had a counselor when you were in school. For those of you who did, there is a good possibility that school counselors have different job requirements than they did 10 or 20 years ago.
First and foremost, it is my responsibility to help your child get the best possible education. A good education includes not only learning how to read, write and “do” math, but also learning good social skills. This means, among other things, learning how to get along with other children, making good decisions, controlling anger, accepting responsibility, and being aware of personal strengths and weaknesses. Many of these skills are taught at home. It is my intent to supplement this learning with classroom guidance, group counseling and individual counseling.
