Why Elementary School Counselors?
The elementary school years set the foundation for developing the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for children to become healthy, competent, and confident learners. Elementary school counselors have an impact on these years by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program and collaborating with school staff, parents, and the community to create a safe and respectful learning environment. By providing education, prevention, early identification and intervention, elementary school counselors help their students achieve academic success, develop an understanding of career opportunities, and develop social/emotional skills in response to issues they face.

What Does a School Counselor Do?
Here are some ways I can offer support:
Parents: I encourage you to contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone (720-561-3042), or in person when you have concerns about your child, or simply wish to partner with me.
Please note: I work at Mesa half-time and am at the school Mondays and Tuesdays, and every other Wednesday.
In the event of an emergency or crisis, we will communicate directly, and I thank you in advance for this partnership!
