MEET THE TOW COUNSELING TEAM
School Counselors are trained to help students with regard to three domain areas: personal/social needs, academic concerns, and career planning. They provide direct and indirect support services for students, teachers, administrators, and parents relative to helping students maximize their full academic potential. School Counselors can see students individually or in small group settings. In addition, they sometimes make classroom presentations on topics related to any of those three domain areas at the request of teachers or staff.
School Counselors also provide consultation for parents and teachers as needed on individual student or family issues that might preclude students from maximizing their academic potential.
Counselors help students to:
- Sort out problems
- Discuss feelings and needs
- Explore options
- Set Goals
Counselors also help students learn new skills related to:
- Conflict resolution
- Anger management
- Study habits
