My Counselor Philosophy

I believe...

  • an effective school counselor is dedicated to student growth and achievement.

  • will gain the skills necessary to be an effective counselor though different streams of professional development.

  • the emotional health of an individual is a pipeline to other personal successes.

  • Growth and development is a lifelong process that begins in our youth.

Parents and families are essential partners in promoting good attendance because they have the bottom-line responsibility for making sure their children get to school every day. Just as parents should focus on how their children are performing academically, they have a responsibility to set expectations for good attendance

Sterling Elementary School will improve student attendance by:  

  • Reducing the number of students arriving late for class by 15%.  

  • Decreasing the number of students who miss five or more days of school during Fall Semester by 15%.  

  • Decreasing the number of students who miss 10 or more days during the school year by 25%.

  • Increasing parental awareness about the importance of school attendance, arriving on-time, and the resources/supports available.
