• What We Believe: 

    All students are a unique part of the learning environment.
    All students have the potential to succeed academically, vocationally, personally, and socially.
    School counselors advocate for all students by collaborating with teachers, parents, and administrators to create a learning environment in which students can achieve their personal best.
    The best school counseling is both individualized and data driven, working towards the goal of helping students achieve their personal best.
    How We Help:

    Classroom guidance addresses important preventative and developmental topics, including conflict resolution, bullying, academic skills, career, and personal safety, among others.  Topics are determined by needs assessment data and teacher input and meet both state and national standards.

    Small groups provide additional learning experiences, giving children the opportunity to build relationships, practice new skills, and learn through the support of group members.  Small group topics vary widely and are determined by data and current need.

    Individual counseling is offered on a short term basis for a variety of student concerns. School counselors provide information to parents in search of community-based resource referral or additional information to help children.

    Consultation with parents and teachers is a critical part of the school counselor's role in advocating for students and helping them succeed. Questions about services for your child?  Email Ms. Reagan at allison.reagan@knoxschools.org or Ms. Estep at lindsay.estep@knoxschools.orgYou may also call 689-1445.

    How to Refer: 
    At the beginning of each school year, all classrooms receive a lesson that introduces students to the counselor and teaches them how to access services.  As the year goes by, though, some children will have questions about how to see the counselor.  Here are some different ways: Students can write a note, and put it in one of the two School Counseling mailboxes.  Be sure to include the child's name and teacher's name, so we know who to come see. Tell the teacher you'd like to see the counselor.  He or she can get her the message. Parents can call or email to refer their child.
