What does a school counselor do?

What I do as your school counselor:
 
  • Work with ALL students to encourage a safe school climate of trust and respect. 
  • Deliver classroom lessons. 
  • Facilitate small groups.
  • Meet individually with students to do brief, solution-focused counseling. 
  • Help students who are struggling to make positive behavior choices.
  • Collaborate with parents/guardians, teachers, support staff, and administration.
  • Maintain confidentiality of students and their families unless there is a need to know or a safety concern.
  • Provide education and information about students' social-emotional needs.
