Counseling

My name is Amy Wood, and I am so excited to meet new students and see the familiar faces! As your School Counselor, I am here to help ALL students be successful socially, emotionally, and behaviorally so they may access their education without barriers.  I have been the Counselor here since 2010, and I love it!

Here’s what I do at our school:

Classroom Guidance Lessons – I visit all grades to teach social-emotional skills such as feelings, communication, problem-solving, diversity, respect, etc.

 Small Group Counseling – I facilitate small groups for students who need a little extra support in a certain area.

Individual Counseling – I meet with students short-term to work through problems affecting them at school.

 Consultation with Staff/Parents – I am available to meet/talk with teachers and parents to help support students and provide resources and education about issues affecting children.

Here’s what you should know about me:

I am ONE part of the team that works to help your child succeed.  I like to get to know ALL students so they may feel connected and safe while they’re with us.  I respect your right and your child’s right to privacy. Confidentiality is a big part of my job. 

 I love it when parents reach out to me for questions, concerns, and to share positive things about your child.

I am grateful for the opportunity to help children become respectful and responsible citizens!

 

Sincerely,

Amy Wood
