It is the school counselor's responsibility to help children get the best possible education. A good education includes not only learning to read, write, and solve math problems, but it also includes learning good social skills.  This means learning how to get along with others, making good decisions, solving conflicts appropriately and accepting responsibility.

School counselors are available to help students who are facing family disruptions such as illness, death, or divorce.  If your family is experiencing anything out of the ordinary or if your child may be facing a special problem, let me know.
