Elementary school counselors have an impact on these years by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program and collaborating with school staff, parents and the community to create a safe and respectful learning environment. By providing education, prevention, early identification and intervention, elementary school counselors help their students achieve academic success, develop an understanding of career opportunities and develop social/emotional skills in response to issues they face. </font></p><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;margin-top:14px;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;text-decoration-line:inherit;line-height:1.55;padding-bottom:0px;white-space:pre-wrap;"><font face="arial, sans-serif">--American School Counselor Association (ASCA)</font></p><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;font-style:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;line-height:1.55;padding-top:0px;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><strong><br></strong></font></p><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;font-style:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;line-height:1.55;padding-top:0px;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><strong>What Does a School Counselor Do?</strong></font></p><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;font-style:inherit;font-weight:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;line-height:1.55;padding-top:0px;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><br></font></p><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;font-style:inherit;font-weight:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;line-height:1.55;padding-top:0px;"><font face="arial, sans-serif">Here are some ways I can offer support:</font></p><ul style="color:#222222;font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;list-style-type:square;padding-left:20px;margin-top:6px;"><li style="margin:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;font-style:inherit;font-weight:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;line-height:1.55;padding-top:0px;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><strong>Classroom Life Skills Lessons</strong>: Each month, and by teacher request, I deliver classroom lessons on social and emotional topics, adapted from a variety of curricula. This is considered Tier 1 or the Universal layer of support in that <em>all </em>K-5<em> </em>students receive the lessons. Counseling lessons support the other Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programs already in place, such as Nurtured Heart and Well-Managed Schools. </font></li><li style="margin:6px 0px 0px;outline:none;color:#212121;font-style:inherit;font-weight:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;line-height:1.55;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><strong>Small Group Counseling: </strong>Groups develop as the year proceeds and needs arise. I lead groups on such topics as Friendship and Social Skills, Managing Worries and other Big Feelings, and Transitioning Families. Groups are comprised of 3-5 students and usually last six to eight weeks. Groups are considered Tier 2 or the Targeted level of support in that they are for <em>some </em>students. Referrals come from teachers and parents.</font></li><li style="margin:6px 0px 0px;outline:none;color:#212121;font-style:inherit;font-weight:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;line-height:1.55;padding-bottom:0px;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><strong>Individual Counseling: </strong>By teacher, parent or student self-referral, I work with students on anything impeding the learning process. Counseling is usually brief and is solution-focused. If a student is needing therapy, or more counseling services, I can provide families with resources in the community. This service is considered Tier 3 or the Intensive layer of support in that 1:1 counseling is for a <em>select </em>number of students during the school day.</font></li></ul><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;font-style:inherit;font-weight:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;margin-top:14px;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;line-height:1.55;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><strong>Parents: </strong>I encourage you to contact me via email (<a href="mailto:eric.swan@bvsd.org" target="_blank" style="color:inherit;font-style:inherit;font-weight:700;border-bottom:1px solid #6eb7d8;">noel.yegian@bvsd.org</a>), phone (720-561-3738), or in person when you have concerns about your child, or simply wish to partner with me.</font></p><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;font-style:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;margin-top:14px;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;line-height:1.55;"><font face="arial, sans-serif"><strong>Please note: </strong><span style="font-weight:inherit;">I work at Community Montessori half-time and am at the school Thursdays and Fridays, and every other Wednesday.</span></font></p><p style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:small;font-style:inherit;font-weight:inherit;text-decoration:inherit;margin-top:14px;margin-bottom:0px;outline:none;color:#212121;line-height:1.55;"><font face="arial, sans-serif">In the event of an emergency or crisis, we will communicate directly, and I thank you in advance for this partnership!</font></p><p><br></p>
