Meet Our Counselors:
Mission: The mission of the Bascomb Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide a safe and accepting environment for students to work towards reaching their highest potential. Students will have access to the school counseling program through individual counseling check-ins, small groups and classroom counseling lessons that will focus on their academic, personal/social and career needs. The school counselors will work to assist all students in accomplishing their goals and becoming responsible, productive, and culturally aware citizens at school and in their community.
Classroom Counseling Lessons: Classroom lessons are a pivotal part of the school counseling program and curriculum. All Bascomb Elementary students will participate in classroom counseling lessons that will address the personal/social, academic and career needs of the students. The classroom lessons are preventative in nature.
Individual Counseling Many students can benefit from speaking with the school counselor individually. This can occur for a variety of reasons including conflicts, social skills, organizational skills, time management assistance, changes at home, stress management and many more. Typically, students are referred by their teachers or parent(s)/guardian but also have the option of self-referral. School counselors provide short term counseling (check-ins) that does not replace long term therapy or counseling that occurs outside of the school setting.
Small Group Counseling Small group counseling can be a great way for students to interact with others of a similar age who may be facing like challenges. Small groups offer students a chance to gain skills and techniques that can assist them in a particular area in which they may be struggling and are beneficial as they learn from their peers. Students may be referred by their teachers or parent(s)/guardian. Parental consent is required for a student to participate in group.
