Ms. Erin Scannell
I am looking forward to my fifth year at Patriots STEM Elementary School! This year's school-wide theme is Farm to Table. Our counseling theme is
"Best in Nature and the Best in Us!"
This year, I am responsible for Kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th grades. Both School Counselors will continue to teach students about Kelso's Wheel of Choice (problem-solving skills) and Second Step (getting emotions under control) this year.
I am always available to work with students individually. I intend to meet every student this year! I recognize that is easier said than done but I have a number of opportunities during the school day as I walk around school, visit recesses and the cafeteria, and conduct Counseling lessons during their media Connect time.
I am available to assist parents and guardians who have concerns or questions about their students. We also have a weekly Newsletter which will discuss what we are doing in the Social-Emotional Lessons, the Word of the Week, and the calendar of what is coming up.
I know it will be another GREAT year as I have learned so much from my county colleagues, all the PES teachers & staff (including our Super Subs!), PTO Volunteers, parents, and perhaps my greatest teacher, the students!
"You're off to great places. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!"
