Some people think that Professional School Counselors (previous Guidance Counselors) only work with children who need help. The truth is that we work with all students to provide academic support, develop personal/social skills and explore careers. In the Knox County elementary schools, counselors are usually divided between schools. Therefore, to be effective, it is critical that we consult and collaborate with administration, the staff, parents and local community organizations. This year I am assigned to Sterchi on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.
At Sterchi Elementary, I work with all students through classroom guidance lessons. I address specific needs through individual and small counseling groups.This year I will be visiting your child's classroom every other week.
