Degrees and Certifications:
The Webb City School District is fortunate to have a comprehensive school counseling program where all children have the opportunity to enhance the skills necessary to help them become responsible, successful learners. Our counseling curriculum is based on the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program. The curriculum is designed to help students acquire age-appropriate knowledge and skills within the following content areas:
-Personal and Social Development: self-awareness, personal safety, decision-making, social skills, conflict resolution, & emotional intelligence
-Academic Development: listening skills, following directions, & organizational skills
-Career Development: community jobs, working together, & school and work skills
The focus of the counseling program is to help build a supportive and caring environment so that students will achieve academic and personal success. By offering classroom, group, and individual counseling, students’ needs can be collectively and uniquely met in a variety of ways. Students may self-refer or be referred by teachers, parents or other school personnel to receive group and individual counseling, while all students receive classroom counseling instruction. As the school counselor, I am also available to help parents and teachers understand the developmental growth stages of children, as well as to work with them in whatever capacity I am capable of to promote the growth and wellbeing of our children.
Full implementation of this counseling program is achieved through a partnership between the counselor, other staff members, community resources, and parents. This partnership helps to foster students’ sense of empowerment and self-determination. By addressing the intellectual and emotional needs of students, it is our hope that each child will have a rewarding school experience.
