      Classroom Guidance Lessons
      I am currently teaching Kindergarten, First and Second Grades during the first Semester. I will teach Third, Fourth and Fifth Grades during The second Semester.  The goal is to teach eight lessons that fulfill the state standards in the areas of Academic Skills, College and Career Readiness and Social and Emotional Development.   
       
      Small Groups
      Small groups are offered throughout the year on a variety of topics including: self esteem, friendship, conflict resolution, divorce, and more.
       
       
      Consultation and Individual Students 
      Of course, I am available throughout the year to consult with parents and work with individual students as needed.  Parents can email or call me directly to talk about their student or schedule a meeting.
