        What Do School Counselors Do?

        Elementary School Counselors provide a variety of functions. Some of the following may be unique to me but many are universal.

        1. Classroom Guidance Lessons
        2. Group Counseling/Support (Friendship, Social Skills, Family Change/Divorce, Grief)
        3. Individual Counseling/Support
        4. Conflict Resolution/Mediation
        5. Consultation with teachers
        6. Respond to parent concerns
        7. 504 Site Facilitator
        8. Special Education Support
        9. Equity Team
        10. School Testing Coordinator
        11. And So On...

        The truth is, Minnesota is one of only a handful of states that does not mandate school counselors in elementary schools. If you have any questions about the services I offer, please feel free to contact me so we can discuss your families needs further.
