                                                                      Just what is a School Counselor??


Parents, the press, administrators and the general public often wonder just what it is that school counselors do on a daily basis. Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class or waiting for a crisis to occur. Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, career and social/emotional development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. 
The role of the School Counselor is one of support, collaboration, leadership and advocacy. We value each person's unique qualities and provide positive solutions to situations. Communication and compassion  are the goals of the School Counselors in working with parents, students, staff, and administrators. All aspects of academic assistance are provided after reviewing all data available to determine student's academic progress. We address these student needs through individual and group counseling, classroom lessons, crisis counseling, and providing resources to our community.
