My goal as school counselors is to help our students grow academically, personally, and socially by delivering classroom guidance lessons, small group activities, and individual sessions. School counselors provide students with an opportunity to discuss and process feelings, learn new skills and behaviors, and build positive character traits.

What do School Counselors Do?

Counselors work alongside the staff and parents to help students develop socially, emotionally, and to help remove any barriers they have to learning.
