At Granger Elementary, it is my job, as the school counselor to assist all students on an as-need basis. My main priority is to work with students so that they can be successful at school. Seeing the counselor does not mean that there is a problem or you are in trouble. In fact, my office is a safe place to talk and work out problems that might arise during the school day. I am here to listen! Most often, I will visit with students 1-2 times based on request. If, however, there is a need to see a student more frequently or if they choose to participate in an on-going group (6-8 weeks), I will first request a signed parent permission letter.
Parents and students, I am here to help!!
I am so excited to be back "home" at Granger!
Thanks so much for your support!
