School Counseling & Guidance
An effective guidance program exists only through the combined and coordinated efforts of all school staff members and parents. Counselors, teachers, and administrators work together to accomplish the implementation of a good guidance program. School Guidance is designed to help each child achieve academically, emotionally, and socially, to his/her maximum potential in the educational setting.
A great deal of a child's personal and social growth is completed before leaving elementary school. Sometimes, children encounter learning blocks such as:
- Classroom adjustment difficulties
- Issues on the playground and/or bus
- Poor peer relations
- Home-oriented issues Lack of study skills
- Shy or withdrawn behavior
- Lack of self-confidence
These concerns can prevent maximum learning from occurring. As the counselor at Taft Elementary School, I am here to help your child cope with these hurdles. Please feel free to call me to discuss your child's needs.
