Working With Children
The major role of our guidance counselors is the assessment and development of our students. For this reason, they observe the students in the school setting, make individual and group counseling interventions when needed, prepare and conduct developmental and preventive counseling services focusing development of our students.
Working With Parents
Our elementary guidance counselors also inform the parents about the development of their children, conduct guidance sessions for parents to improve their parenting skills and enhance their relationships with their children. Because it is the goal of our counselors to create a healthy environment in and out of school. Parents also can contact our guidance counselors about academic, social and emotional concerns and family transitions such as death, moving or divorce.
Working With Administrators And Teachers
Our counselors work together with administrators and teachers and regular meetings are held with the principals to assist with identifying and resolving student needs and problems. We believe that children have a natural instinct for empathy and a desire to help others, so our counselors provide opportunities for our students to express this drive and realize they have the ability to imagine and achieve goals. We believe a mindset of generosity and gratitude comes naturally to young people, and our mission is to help nurture these seeds for a balanced, joyful and productive life.
This helps make the school environment more joyful, but moreover it contributes to the success of each child.
