SEL Special Area K-5 – At Citrus Grove I have the pleasure of going into all K-5 classes, once a month, as part of the special area schedule! Lessons will include information on friendship skills, feelings, conflict resolution, decision making, self-control and other social skills. When teachers see that their class needs help in a certain area they can request that I do a lesson on a certain skill (i.e. tattling, personal hygiene / germs, etc.).

Lessons are taught using the following research based curriculum resources:

Individual Support is available to all students at the request of teachers, families, or students. I am a resource to help students succeed in school. Individual support within the school setting is short term. If your child tells you he/she met with me, please don't be alarmed. Sometimes students self-refer and visit with me once or twice, and are able to solve their own problem. If students come to my office more than twice or it is of a serious nature families are contacted. I feel fortunate to be able to spend time listening to students while providing a safe setting to help them work through challenges. I feel as though I am another safe friend a Citrus Grove who is available to help students academically and emotionally. 

Special Events – Throughout the year the following events are sponsored by the school counselor: Backpack's for those in need, Unity Day, Red Ribbon Week, Families in need holiday support, Great Kindness Challenge
