My Role:

As a school counselor, my role consists of meeting with students individually, in small groups,
through classroom lessons, and school-wide events. I help all students apply academic
achievement strategies, manage emotions, apply interpersonal skills, and plan for post-secondary
options. I collaborate with administration, teachers, and support staff to ensure that student needs
are addressed and met. 

Direct counseling roles include providing assistance and support for students during times of
transition, heightened stress, crisis, peer conflicts, academic interventions, critical change, or
other situations impeding student success.
