The School Counseling Program at Shadow Lake:

The Key to Success:

I strongly believe the partnership between home and school has a direct effect on the success of a student. For this reason, it is important for me to have open communication with parents.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any concerns or questions you may have regarding your student.

My Philosophy:

I view every student as an individual. Each student comes to school with their own learning styles, unique experiences and interests. For those reasons, it is important for me to get to know the students and work collaboratively with their teacher & parents, to help foster a positive school experience.

As the school counselor, information shared with me is confidential, unless a student tells me he/she is planning on harming themselves or others or if she/he is a victim of abuse or neglect. In these situations, I am required by law to report this information to parents and/or the appropriate agencies. I strongly believe the partnership between home and school has a direct effect on the success of a student.

My role as the School Counselor is to:
