      Guidance Curriculum:
      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:
      Conflict Resolution
      Character Building
      Violence Prevention
      Bullying Issues
      Self-Awareness

      Parent Involvement:
      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
