• Counselor's Corner

    Parents and Guardians,

    I am thrilled to be the School Counselor at Hemphill Elementary! Go Hawks! The counseling program at HES consists of four components: guidance curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and system support.

    As the School Counselor, I will be going into each classroom for guidance lessons. We will complete lessons from Cloud 9, our Social Emotional Learning Curriculum, which covers topics that build on Character Education. During these lessons we learn new skills while having fun in the process.

    I also offer Lunch Groups. At the beginning of the year I invite Kindergarten students to have lunch with me so that I can get to know them and establish a relationship. All other grades will focus on a variety of social skills that help them to be successful at school. You will be notified and will return a permission form if you wish for your child to participate.

    Students can self-refer themselves to me by using my referral link on my virtual counseling office or asking their teacher. If I receive a referral from them they usually come chat with me for a short 5-10 minutes and then head back to class. If there is an immediate concern, parents will be notified. 

    Please reach out to me when your child needs support. I can see students individually or check in on students as needed. The parent referral link can be found on my virtual counseling office.

    Together we will ensure that every student has a successful school year! Please don’t hesitate to contact me, I am here to help.
