Hello! students and parents. I am very happily working as the counselor at Daniels Canyon Elementary. My main focus as a counselor is to build relationships and get to know each student at DCE. I believe this is critical in order for students to learn important concepts from monthly classroom lessons. Strong relationships with students is also very critical as I help them build strong academic,  social and emotional competence. Check out what we are working on each month by clicking here: Monthly classroom tip Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year. 


The Role of an Elementary School Counselor

An elementary school counselor has three main activites in the school: 
Classroom Instruction– Monthly lessons in each k-5 classroom. Themes include conflict resolution, bully prevention, making friends, growth mindset, building positive habits, managing emotions, resilience, personal safety. 
Approach to Dropout Prevention- Meet weekly with individual students, parent consultation, crisis intervention including individual academic or social and emotional support. 
Plan for College and Career- Spend a little bit of classroom lesson time helping students understand importance of decisions for the future. Individual interests are important for future life decisions.
