Hello East Orient families!
I am thrilled to be joining the team this year as East Orient's new School Counselor. This is my third year in education. I moved to Portland from sunny Tucson, Arizona in 2018. I have previously worked in Beaverton and West Linn-Wilsonville.
The School Counseling program at East Orient Elementary is based on the American School Counseling Association National Model and our district standards. It includes a variety of services for ALL students and is designed to assist with interests and issues related to the stages of student growth in the areas of academic, career, personal, emotional, and social development. Here are services that may be offered for the 2022-2023 school year:
Small group counseling sessions, with parent permission, for students focusing on: friendship/social skills, anger management, and other topics as necessary. If you feel that your child needs assistance in any of these areas, please let me know.
Individual meetings to help students adjust to school or help with personal issues on an as-needed basis.
Classroom lessons with an emphasis on personal/social skills, bullying prevention, child protection, academic development (study skills), and career awareness. I will post lessons in each classroom by Wednesday afternoon.
Referral assistance to other programs and services in the community.
If you have any questions regarding the counseling program, please contact me directly at 971-333-8943 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working together with you this year to help ensure your child’s success.
