What is a School Counselor?

  • School Counselors are a type of 'helper'  at school.

    School Counselors serve as a bridge between home, school and the community.

    School counselors are good listeners and have lots of strategies to suggest for different issues. Whether it’s a problem at school or at home, a problem with your friends, or a personal issue that you’re dealing with, I will help the best I can!

    I am a resource for students, families and teachers.

    friendship     social skills     behavior    feelings     bullying     hygiene     new baby

    and much more . . .
