What does a counselor do?
At Harry McKillop Elementary we are interested in student success. Success extends beyond academic skills. It includes character values, interpersonal skills, coping skills, personal understanding, and leadership abilities. It is during the elementary years that these begin to develop. The elementary counselor helps students develop these skills and abilities through classroom guidance, individual counseling, small group counseling, and facilitating school-wide programs, as well as providing parent and teacher support.
Who is the school counselor?
My name is Tim Brown. Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (972) 837 2632 if you need anything.
I’ve been a school counselor for several years, and I am thrilled to be a part of HME. I love working with kids and families to help students become successful and happy. I have great hope for the success of all students, and believe each child has the capacity for greatness.
On a more personal note, I am married to the most beautiful, wonderful, woman in the world, Heather. We have three (mostly) charming kiddos, Olivia, Timmy, and Sophia. They keep us pretty busy, and we have a great time together.
I love to laugh. I really enjoy working with kids, families, and teachers in elementary school. Helping them is my passion. I am thrilled to be included in the HME family. It is my sincere pleasure to serve you.
Someone suggested I call the counselor about getting a 504 plan. What is that?
Section 504 is a federal law that protects students with a physical or mental impairment that substantially impacts one or more major life activities. A 504 plan provides students with accommodations which allow them to have a “free appropriate public education.” For more information, please contact Mr. Brown.
