What Is An Elementary School Counselor?
An Elementary School Counselor helps students with their personal/social, career, and academic needs. School Counselors offer support to students who are struggling with a variety of issues and help them work through problems and develop the tools they need to succeed. A School Counselor, like other school personnel, works to promote a safe and nurturing school environment.

"Elementary school years set the tone for developing the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for children to become healthy, competent and confident learners. Through a comprehensive developmental school counseling program, school counselors work as a team with the school staff, parents and the community to create a caring climate and atmosphere. By providing education, prevention, early identification and intervention, school counselors can help all children achieve academic success (ASCA, 2012)."

So What Exactly Does My School Counselor Do?
We are really good listeners! We like to hang out, play games, learn new things about ourselves, and talk! We usually do this individually or in a group setting with other students. You may find that your school counselor will come into your classroom too to talk about topics like bullying, feelings, emotions, how to be a good friend, careers, and many other things! The cool part about talking to your school counselor is that whatever you talk about stays between the counselor and you. Nobody else has to know! Unless of course there is a safety concern and it becomes unsafe for you or for other students. School counselors work with your teachers, parents, principal, and other important people to help you become the best
YOU you can be!
