Counseling at Denmark
My name is Dr. Williams and I am the school counselor at Denmark Elementary. I work with every student individually, in small groups, and/or in their classroom.
For small group counseling, I send home a permission form that lets parents know what the topic is, what content will be covered, and the goals of the group. Parents have the option of allowing their child to participate or declining the invitation to the small group.
For classroom-based counseling, teachers sign-up for units based on what they think the students need most. Common topics include self-esteem, making and keeping friends, positive school behaviors, and bullying.
To receive individual counseling, a student is referred by their parent, teacher, or principal. Students can also meet with me at their own request. Students come to my classroom to talk about things that impact their learning at school, such as friendships, study skills, and self-esteem. In my office, students can feel free to talk about things that worry them and to ask questions. My goal is to help your child be successful both academically and socially through scheduled one-on-one counseling opportunities. The goal is to meet with your child regularly at first and then slowly decrease services to an “as needed” basis.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (731) 506-3245. I would be happy to work with you to make your child’s time at Denmark Elementary great!
