Welcome to Counselor's Corner!
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! It is hard to believe this is my 26th year in education, seventeen of those being as a classroom teacher and eight as a school counselor. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Nicholls State University and my Master of Education degree in School Counseling. This is my 11th year as a Tchefuncte Gator, and there is no place I would rather be than at TMS!
My role as the school counselor includes many different aspects. Academic support and decreasing and/or preventing social and emotional barriers that may interfere with academic success are vital components of a school experience. Social skills and problem solving skills are learned behaviors just as children learn how to read and write. Children learn how to handle their emotions, react to situations, and interact with others by watching and listening to the adults in their lives. Parents are a child’s first role model. I am here to provide support and guidance to all students and parents, teachers and staff in order to maximize success in the classroom and to help develop the whole child.
I am very excited to serve the needs of our students and our community. I look forward to partnering with you throughout your child's educational journey here at TMS!
