Here are just a few of the props I use to explain my role to students.
Ear phones- counselors are great listeners. I want to listen and help with any problems you may be having at home or school.
Glue- Counselors will always stick by you!
Flash Light- Just like a flash light helps you to not be scared of the dark, counselors help students when scary things happen.
Tissue- Counselors help to wipe away your tears, if you’re feeling sad.
Hand Clapper- Counselors cheer for you when you make good choices. Counselors are encouragers and help students to make good choices at school.
Please ask your child if he/she knows the counselor’s name (Mrs. Vick: k-1st). Also, ask him/her what the counselor does at HES. 🙂
