Elementary School Counselors provide young learners with effective and developmentally appropriate tools for communicating, making decisions and developing friendships and coping skills. Counselors provide services through Curriculum, Responsive Services, System Support, and Individual Planning at the elementary level.

The American School Counselors Association (ASCA) explains it this way, “Comprehensive developmental school counseling programs provide education, prevention and intervention services, which are integrated into all aspects of children’s lives. Early identification and intervention of children’s academic and personal/social needs is essential in removing barriers to learning and in promoting academic achievement. The knowledge, attitudes and skills that students acquire in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development during these elementary years serve as the foundation for future success.”

In the Smyrna School District, we strive to incorporate the goals of the ASCA ( American School Counselors Association) and deliver comprehensive, development, and systematic program services for our children. As an elementary school counselor, my time is spent collaborating with teachers and staff, teaching classroom lessons, facilitating short-term small group counseling and providing immediate short-term counseling when needed. In addition, I consult with parents, on a regular basis, to incorporate curriculum development and provide referrals for community resources.

Parents and teachers are always welcome to reach out to me if they have specific concerns about concerns such as changes in the family, classroom performance, relationships with peers, bullying and behavior issues.
