As the Counselor, I have the privilege to work with every single student in the school. I plan on working with students at the classroom level, small group level, as well as at the short-term individual counseling level. I will also be collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all St. A's students.
Most importantly, I am available to have meetings with parents to discuss the needs of individual students. I am here for all students and want to ensure that your child has a productive and positive school year.
If I can support your child in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me. Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. I encourage you to reach out if you have concerns regarding your child.
Word of the Week
Word of the week: Optimism.
Definition: A feeling or belief that good things will happen in the future.
Being optimistic #1 Optimism is a mindset — Ways of thinking and seeing things. Researchers have spent a lot of time studying people who think positively. It turns out that an optimistic attitude helps us be happier, more successful, and healthier.
#2 Optimism can protect against depression — even for people who are at risk for it. An optimistic outlook makes people more resistant to stress. Optimism may even help people live longer. The best thing about optimism is you can learn it, even if your outlook tends to be more pessimistic.
#3 Optimism lets us see disappointing events as temporary situations that we can get past. It strengthens us to try again rather than give up. Optimism allows us to keep our goals and dreams in play so we can act on the motivation to keep working toward them. Because of this, optimistic people feel more in control of their situations and have higher self-esteem.
