My Students

When children have a safe learning environment, that promotes positive behaviors, everyone wins. I am so excited to take on a new adventure as a Middle School guidance counselor. I want to be proactive in their social and emotional learning. These 140 students come from a variety of backgrounds. We live in a rural community that spans many small surrounding towns. Many of our students come from single-parent, blended families, and low-income households.

These kiddos are eager to learn, grow, and take on empathy, social skills, and emotional responsibilities.

I am so excited to be part of their learning experience next year as their 5th/6th Grade Guidance Teacher, they are a fantastic bunch!

My Project

Social and emotional skills are extremely important to achieving success in schools. Many students are not equipped with these skills when they enter the school doors. As my students' middle school guidance counselor, I want them to know they have a safe haven to work through any potential issues they may be facing in their lives. Also, be able to equip my students for future success. The students will be using the Guidance office for peer relation groups, one-on-one meetings, and large group instruction.

Integrating social and emotional skills learning into our curriculum improves students’ attitudes and engagement.

Social and emotional skills can benefit our students, and more importantly, they can be taught. We can help build, self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making skills!
