Dear teachers, staff, students, parents, and guardians,
Welcome to SIS for the 2017-18 school year! I look forward to encouraging and witnessing the academic, personal, and social growth of students during this academic year.
As the Elementary Counselor, I can help students overcome social or emotional obstacles that may get in the the way of achieving their academic potential. At SIS, we care about the holistic development of students, which includes learning healthy habits and coping strategies.
Students are welcome to visit my office during breaks or lunch time, or can make an appointment with me. Counseling services at school include brief individual counseling, group counseling, classroom guidance lessons, responsive services, and consultation. Individual and group counseling is by no means compulsory, and can be discontinued at any time. It is important to note that meeting with the counselor is a confidential process unless the student is in danger of hurting others or themselves. Confidentiality ensures that trust can be established, and the needs of students can more fully be met.
Please contact me if you have any questions, or if I can be of support in any way. I look forward to meeting you all this year!
