    Welcome to the School Counseling Page for Brickey-McCloud Elementary 2022-2023

    Thank you for taking the time to find the school counseling page. We hope that you find it useful. Please continue to check back throughout the school year as we will be adding content as the year continues. We are excited to have two school counselors this year at Brickey. Mrs. Adams, is our fulltime (5 Days) counselor and Ms. Jessy Alva, we will share with Corryton Elementary. She will be with us 3 days a week and the other 2 days at Corryton Elem..  Both counselors may work with any student, but our plan for this year is to have Ms. Alva working with and teaching four of our Kindergarten classrooms; 1st grade, and 5th grade students. Mrs. Adams will be working with and teaching four Kindergarten Classrooms: 2nd, 3rd, and 5th gr. students this year. We are excited about beginning a new year with lots of new and exciting things happening in our school and within our district. Our theme for Brickey this year is Ohana! The 2022 - 2023 school year will be full of adventures, fun, and lots of new learning!  Brickey and Knox county Schools will do all we can to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our students to continue to grow and learn. Our job as your school counselors is to help with that any way we can. This will take everyone communicating their needs. So please do not hesitate to call or email your child's teacher, their school counselor or one of our amazing administrators, if you have any questions or concerns this year. As your school counselors, we provide many different services through our school counseling program.

    Services provided through our comprehensive developmental school counseling program include:
    • Classroom Lessons "Counseling Class"  -(Academic, Social-Emotional, & Career TN Student Standards
    • Individual Counseling -(NOTE: this is NOT therapy, it IS extra help with school related skills ex. coping skills, organization, focus, self-advocacy, etc.)
    • Small Group Counseling -(topics based on needs ex. grief, divorce, study skills, etc.)
    • Consultation and Collaboration with all Stakeholders
    • Parent Meetings 
    • Crisis Management
    • Referrals for Mental Health services if needed

     

    We feel very fortunate to be able to work in such an amazing environment with extraordinary students and staff members. We look forward to working with you and your student. Our goal is to help ensure that every student feels happy, safe, and ready to learn skills needed for success.

    *** Attention/ Action Needed ***
     
    Parents and Teachers: As part of my job and to ensure that we understand the needs of our students, we would like you to please take a quick needs assessment if you have not already done so.  Students will have a separate needs assessment they will do with me through counseling class. The information on this will help me to better plan for classes and other things for the school year as well as help our social worker to address needs we may otherwise not know about with your input. Thank in advance for your time and willingness to help us better understand the needs of Brickey McCould students, families, and the community. Have a great day!
