As your school counselor I believe that through working with the school staff, parents, students, and the community we can create a safe and respectful learning environment.  School counseling is essential for students to achieve optimal personal growth, positive social skills, set academic, and career goals. These skills will assist each student in becoming responsible and productive members of their community and our world.
