What is a school counselor?
A school counselor is a counselor and an educator who works in elementary, middle, and high schools to provide academic, career, and personal/social competencies to all students through advocacy, leadership, systemic change, and teaming and collaborating with other stakeholders as part of a comprehensive developmental school counseling program.
What will Mrs. Taylor do for the students, parents, & staff at our school?
With the support of administrative teams and staff, we are creating a comprehensive school counseling program to meet the needs of all students. This will come in the preventative form of classroom guidance lessons and whole school interventions. Students who need additional support will receive individual or group counseling. We are also here to support teachers, other staff, and parents through consultation and collaboration.
What are the goals for this school year?
This year, the RAIN counseling team is focusing on implementing the Second Step curriculum in grades K-2. Mrs. Taylor will be around those classrooms at various times throughout the year teaching topics such as emotional wellness, empathy, friendship etc. Mrs. Taylor is also focusing on making all students at Monte Vista Elementary HEROS (Here, Everyday, Ready and On-Time).
