Mrs. Kelle also provides individual and group counseling. Her group topics include self-esteem, divorce, social skills, and anger management. She consults with parents and teachers about student behavior and how to help them emerge sucessfully through life's situations.
If you need to speak to Mrs. Kelle, you can do so via email email@example.com or at the school's main number 985-641-3557. Students who want to meet with her can leave a note with the front office, or have a parent or teacher send an email. They also like to stop me in the hall, which is just fine too.
The goal of Honey Island's School Counseling Program is to facilitate the academic, social, and career development of every student; to help them become responsible citizens and lifelong learners.
The job of the School Counselor is to ensure, to the best of her ability, that every child's needs are being met according to Maslow's hierarchy of needs: physiological, safety, belonging, self-esteem, and self-actualization.
