I am responsible for teaching 30 minute school counseling lessons to students in K-4th grade. I also provide responsive services through individual and small group counseling sessions. My constant challenge is to deliver interesting and meaningful lessons to my students so that they have the tools needed to develop into healthy, happy and contributing members of our global society.
I believe developing a positive relationship with each of my students is important to their academic success. Students who feel cared for and safe will focus their energy on learning. I believe in solution focused brief counseling, where the focus is on finding a solution rather than the "why" of the problem.
A smile and a hug from a student is the best award of all!
