    School Counselors are a type of helper in your school. We help kids with things like problem solving, understanding feelings, and making friends!

    • Provide individual and small group counseling based on student needs
    • Work with students to develop skills such as organization, time management, and effective study habits
    • Help students set realistic academic and career goals and develop a plan to achieve them
    • Evaluate students’ abilities and interests through aptitude assessments and interviews
    • Develop strategies with teachers, administrators, and parents to help students succeed
    • Teach classes on topics such as bullying, drug abuse, and planning for college or careers after graduation
