Counselor's Corner

  • ""One of my favorite things throughout the school year is PK through 5th grade counseling classes. Every class is involved and each class receives at least one lesson each month. The lessons focus on emotions, getting along with others, doing your best, honesty, responsibility, bullying awareness, personal safety (WHO Program), etc. If a teacher has a specific concern in his/her class, I am glad to help out with additional lessons as needed. I inspire students to be fair, emphatic, responsible, respectful, caring, and productive citizens.

    In addition to classroom counselor lessons, I provide individual counseling and group counseling to students as needed. I serve as the campus testing coordinator, the RTI coordinator, manage campus special education testing referrals, administrate the NTFB's Food 4 Kids program on our campus, conduct conferences, serve on various committees, and help out in any other way that is needed.

    I also advise the HAW Music Club, an afterschool club for 4th and 5th graders to learn guitar. I am also involved with the Student Council at Wooden. I have 2 special friends Chloe and Joey (muppets) who give a short video lesson a few times a year to the entire school. This usually involves getting along with siblings, working to be your best, doing chores at home, tattling, respect, responsibility, perseverance, etc.
