Classroom Guidance:  I will work with all K - 6 classes once a month. Lessons will focus on NC Guidance Essential Standards and Mindset Standards.  I work with special area team to coordinate lesson time.

Small Groups: Topics will include social thinking, mindset, friendship issues.  Students, parents and teachers may refer for groups.  I see all K-1 students during a special class and grades 2-5 during their lunch.  Groups run 6-8 weeks.  We meet once a week.

Individual: Students are welcomed to speak to me about concerns.  Teachers and parents may refer students as well. I work with individuals on a short term basis.  I'll be glad to help you get set up with one of the community agencies if additional help is needed.

During the year I will conduct mini meetings with all students.  This is a quick way for me to check in with all students.

I look forward to working with each of you this year.  We are going to have a great year!

Mentors needed!


Mentors Needed!!

If you have 30 minutes - to an hour a week you can give, we need you! Please think about investing in the life of a child. We need mentors to spend time with our kids helping them read, do math or just talk. Please contact me if you are interested in being a part of our mentoring program.
