 ~Professional School Counselor
 
"When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it's our job to share our calm, not to join their chaos." - L. R. Knost
 
I am the Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade school counselor.  The job of a school counselor is to nurture every students' academic, social/emotional, and career development. I also help to minimize environmental or personal barriers that may be preventing a child from receiving access to an equal education opportunity.
 
I work with students by providing individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom guidance lessons to help support good character development, increase positive self-image, and help students feel that they have someone safe to talk to.  I like to make learning fun while encouraging each student to always try their best. This program is based on the NC Guidance Essential Standards. 
 
Please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions or concerns about your student. As a school counselor, I am here to assist students and their families.

Remote Counseling Services for Plans B & C

  • Confidentiality Statement:

    CCS Student Services Team members are here to support students and staff through academic and social emotional growth. We are a critical part of the CCS team. As we navigate through virtual learning, we wanted our CCS families to be aware that we may be able to provide some supports virtually. Please remember that we always adhere to our professional guidelines and ethics for practice (NC Department of Public Instruction, NASW, NASP, and ASCA), whether we provide these services face to face or virtually. We want our families to understand that we are bound to our confidentiality guidelines. Our interaction and conversations with students are confidential unless a student discloses harm to self, harm/threat to others, and harm and mistreatment to a vulnerable child or adult.

    Counselors, Social Workers and Psychologists may be in contact with students through Teams or other voice formats. Parents who are opposed to engaging supportive counseling for their children may contact their principal to opt out of such support

     

    Student/Parent Expectations:

    1. Be sure you or your child has CCS email address and password in order to access Teams. Here are basic directions on how to join the Teams online class meeting.

    2. We ask that students be in a stable location (not driving, walking around, etc.).

    3. Students should be in a private location. We encourage students to use headphones for privacy if preferred.

    4. Students can be in view of camera from neck up only (wearing appropriate clothing, not lying in bed, engage in activities, etc.).

    5. Younger children may benefit from greater parental involvement to help understand the technology and content discussed.

    6. Parents and students in remote locations (not at home for example) should be prepared to offer their location if needed.
