Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Evans

 

 Mrs. Evans, School Counselor

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

As your child’s school counselor I may visit with your child during the school year.  When I put on my counselor’s “hat”, I give up the role of “disciplinarian”.  Did you know that elementary counselors…

 

  • Teach classroom guidance lessons on a variety of topics?  You are your child’s first teacher and your words and actions have tremendous impact.  Since we know that good character is taught, not naturally acquired I teach the following character pillars during the school year:
    1. Responsibility
    2. Respect
    3. Fairness
    4. Trustworthiness
    5. Caring
    6. Citizenship
  • Counsel individual students as needed and maintain confidentiality?
  • Counsel with small groups of children with similar concerns?
  • Consult with teachers and assist them in meeting individual student needs?
  • Coordinate referrals to the assistance team?
  • Provide parents and grandparents with community resource information?
  • Coordinate the student and teacher mentor programs?
  • Monitor in the lunchroom?

 

Guidance services are available to all children enrolled at MJE.  Please feel free to contact me if you have concerns or questions.
