School Counseling Program - Four Components School Counseling Program - Four Components

As a school counselor, I am an educator trained in school counseling, just as other

educators are trained in math, science, or English.  My job at Roosevelt is to develop,

implement, and evaluate a comprehensive School Counseling Program designed to meet

the needs of every student.  To accomplish this goal, I provide classroom lessons,

individual student planning, responsive services, and system support.


Classroom Lessons help students understand themselves and others.

Through classroom lessons, school counselors help students develop peer relationships,

effective social skills, decision making skills and study skills, effective communications,

conflict resolution, coping strategies, and explore safe and healthy choices. 


Individual Student Planning helps students set goals, establish academic and career

plans, understand their own strengths and weaknesses, and prepare for the transitions.


Responsive Services assist students with particular needs, such as adjusting to a new

school, coping with grief following a crisis or a loss, dealing with substance abuse or

other risky behaviors.  Responsive services are provided through individual and small

group counseling, peer facilitation, and consultation and referrals to community

professionals trained in mental health and other specialties.


System Support enhances school climate and relationships among members of the

school community.  School counselors coordinate parent outreach services, community

support services and consultations with other faculty and staff to facilitate

collaboration and a greater understanding of students’ developmental needs. 


As your school counselor, I work to ensure our School Counseling Program is progressive,

dynamic, and responsive to the needs of all students.  Thank you for exploring ways we

can work together to make our Program the best it can be!
