Welcome to my counselor page.
I will be at Campbellsburg Elementary on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I will be at Eastern Elementary on Tuesday and Thursday.
The key role of an elementary school counselor is to help students better understand and accept themselves and their environment. I will work with students, parents, teachers, and administrators to help make your child's school experience a success.

I will talk with students individually when a need is brought to my attention. Students often request to talk with me about a specific concern or worry. Sometimes it's because they are feeling sad, mad, or scared. Other times, parents or teachers will ask me to talk with a child.
Each classoom has a guidance class at least every 2 weeks. The classroom guidance lessons focus on such topic as: adjustment to school, conflict resolution, anger management skills, friendship skills, bullying, the effects of drugs and alcohol, handling peer pressure, personal safety, Internet safety, and positve self esteem. During guidance classes students may participate in classroom discussion, work independently or work in small groups on projects.
