Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! If you or your student needs any assistance here at RLS, I am here to help. As the School Counselor, I am responsible for academic and personal counseling for our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at RLS Middle School. Students wishing to talk with me just need to write me a note or send me an email and I will send a call slip to them. I always try to pull students out of non-core classes but this is not always possible. Each student’s concerns will be confidentially discussed so that efforts can be made to address them. Students may talk with me for any reason and teachers may excuse students for counseling during class time. Sixth graders will be my first priority to allow me the opportunity to introduce myself and get to know a little bit about them.
I am also available to meet with parents. Parents may contact me by phone or email. If parents would like to schedule conferences with teachers, I can set those up. Conferences are thirty minutes and take place during the teachers' collaboration times.
The entire grade level team, parent(s), student, administrator, and I attend each parent conference and work together to assist students. If a parent is unable to attend a conference, we can still hold a meeting with the student, grade level team, an administrator, and myself to discuss concerns and strategies. These meetings are pro-active, solution-focused, and very positive. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a conference for your student.
I'm looking forward to working with your children this year!
