What is a School Counselor?

As a school counselor, I am an educator trained in school counseling, just as other educators are trained in math, science, or language arts. My goal at Macon Elementary is to develop, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive school counseling program designed to meet the needs of ALL students.

Counseling Services

Individual Counseling

Assistance provided to some students who may need help to overcome social and/or emotional concerns that interfere with learning.

Group Counseling

A support group for students who share a common concern.  Parent permission is required to participate.

Classroom Lessons

Lessons are taught within the Specials rotation to assist students with academic, social-emotional, and career development. Kindergarten classes receive lessons every week. Grades 1-4 receive lessons on a three week rotation. I see first and third grade three weeks in a row for 25 minutes of their library time. I see second and fourth grade the following three weeks for 25 minutes of their library time.

How can a student see the counselor?

  • Student can leave a note in the mailbox outside of my room

  • Staff members can call or email to ask me to visit with a student

  • Parent can refer their child for counseling services by calling or emailing
