Middle school can be challenging yet exciting for students and parents. During middle school, students are learning about themselves, their peers, developing social skills, experiencing personal growth, and beginning to think about career goals. At Mountain View Middle School, I am here to assist and support middle school students in their education and in their life. As a school counselor, it is my role and responsibility to be an advocate for all the students in the school. In my counseling office, I will help students with academics, career, and social emotional counseling. In my office, you will see my “College Wall” where I have pendants and flyers from different colleges. My “Think College” poster has helpful information to prepare your middle schooler for college. You will also find information about how to handle emotions, how to calm down, problem solving steps, empathy tools, and much more. My office is located in the Student Services building (#905). My office is the first office when you enter the building.
As a school counselor, I will be engaging with teachers, administration, parents, and community members. It is important for me to collaborate with other educators and community members to ensure that each student is receiving the support they need. I will help the students overcome barriers academically, socially, and emotionally. In the school counseling program, I will be providing direct student services to the students, which include, school counseling curriculum, group activities, and assisting students in their interests, skills, abilities, and more.
Some topics I will discuss with your student:
|College/Career||Problem Solving Skills||Conflict Resolution Skills||Responsibility|
|Time Management Skills||Social Skills||Mental Health||Life Skills, and more|
|Bullying/Cyberbullying||Organization Skills||Test Taking Strategies||Note taking strategies|
I will be providing response services for the students and the school. I will be providing small group counseling and individually counseling. I will also collaborate with parents and community members to ensure that the family and student are being taken care of.
At Mountain View Middle School I will also be incorporating Second Step.
