I became a counselor to walk in my purpose. I strive to help our students be resilient. My hope is that my students overcome, and may be strengthened by any struggles that come their way. #buildingbetterhumans
Watts Guidance and Counseling Program
School is off to a great start and I am very excited to see all the bright and excited faces at Watts Elementary! It has been a joy meeting your children, and I look forward to getting to know you all. I would like to take this opportunity to brief you on the services that I provide.
As a school counselor, I will be available to assist you and your child when their behavior or emotions are affecting their academic and social performance in school. I believe students should feel that school is a safe place where all children can learn and be successful.
Throughout the year, I will be visiting your children in their classrooms. School-wide activities and celebrations will be planned and I hope everyone will encourage their children to participate. I also provide ongoing group and individual counseling when needed.
Referrals to the counselor are through recommendation by the teacher, parent, or the individual student. Please take a moment to visit my website where you can go to find information regarding the counseling program. My website is a very useful tool and provides specific resources when your child may be having an issue.
Once again, I am excited to be here and to be working with you and know that I feel blessed to be here with your children. Please contact me if I can be of service to you or your family.
