We will also participate in school-wide service learning projects such as collecting can food, pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House,Vicki Frank Memory Garden etc...
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!
