Counselor's Corner

Hi.  I'm Mrs. Vassar.  You may contact me now. Just click here!

     Welcome to the Counselor's Corner. There are 3 goals of school counseling: 1.)  to enable students to experience school success, 2.) to enable students to develop career awareness and decision-making competencies, and 3.) to assist students in understanding and respecting self and others. The goals of counseling are met through individual counseling, group counseling, classroom guidance, and consultation with parents and teachers. This website is here to provide resources to students and parents in the areas of social and emotional development, as well as academic needs. If you have a specific question regarding your child/children, please contact me by phone or email. Additionally, if you are need of a resource that is not listed on this site, I will be happy to provide it for you. I hope that you and your family find these resources helpful.
