Drop me a note
The guidance program at Miller Elementary involves classroom guidance opportunities, as well as, individual and small group counseling. A variety of topics are discussed in guidance lessons throughout the school year. Some of the topics include:
Drug Education and Prevention
When parents and teachers work together, they make an unbeatable team. Parent conferences build the teamwork that helps students learn better. Contact me and I will help schedule a conference.
What are the counselor's limits?
Unfortunately, I am not able to provide the following services to your child:
Testifying in court in child-custody matters
Providing intensive long-term counseling services for your child
Limits of Confidentiality
One of the most important parts of being a school counselor is being able to talk to students about personal things. Most of what students tell me can be kept confidential, but I am required to violate that confidentiality if a student tells me one of the following things:
If he or she is planning to hurt himself or herself
If he or she is planning to hurt someone else
If a child is being abused or neglected
