Degrees and Certifications:
As the school counselor, I interact with students, teachers, parents, and community members to facilitate a safe, caring environment for everyone. Either small group or individual counseling enhances a student’s personal and emotional growth. Assisting families in time of need to find resources provided by special programs, specialists, and community agencies links my job as school counselor to the world beyond Royall. Another aspect of my job is consulting with and training teachers, parents, and staff regarding children’s needs. Also, I am responsible for coordinating state and district standardized testing for our school. A student’s academic success is very important. I assume an advocate role in designing, implementing, monitoring, and adjusting educational plans for individual students who have been referred by either parents or teachers. I enjoy coordinating activities for school-wide & grade level service projects which are an integral part of Royall. Monitoring and helping meet the basic social, emotional, and academic needs of all Royall family members sums up the job as school counselor at Royall.
