Mission: 

I make it my mission to focus on the developmental needs of all students and serve as their advocate within a safe and nurturing environment by partnering with staff, families, and community members.  As the school counselor, I am committed to addressing academic and career goals, as well as the social and personal needs of the students while facilitating life-long learning and empowering our students to be responsible world citizens and excellent leaders.  I will embrace diversity and respond to the cultural needs and interests of each student.  Also, I will strive to follow the school counseling standards and ethical standards of the American School Counselor Association( ASCA).

 Vision:

Students will develop skills that will enable them to achieve their highest potential by being a part of a comprehensive school counseling program that focuses on the well-being of the whole child.

Today’s school counselors are professional educators with a mental health perspective who have a minimum of a master’s degree in counseling and are trained to remove barriers to learning. They provide education, prevention, early identification and intervention services to address the academic, personal/social and career development needs of all students.

School Counselors provide the following services to the students:

Classroom Guidance:  Lessons delivered through the use of instruction and planned activities.  Lessons will focus on the academic, career and personal/social development. Also, character education is provided during classroom guidance.
