Counseling Philosophy

  • As an eleventh grade counselor, my goal is to know and understand my students’ individual needs and strengths and ensure they understand all the opportunities available to them. Eleventh grade students are ready to take on new responsibilities, and my role is advise and guide all my students, and set them up to meet their goals after high school. While the path looks different for each student, all students have bright futures open to them.

Eleventh grade commitments

    1. Review high school graduation eligibility
    2. Course advising for 12 grade appropriate to student goals
    3. Education and guidance for post-high school planning
    4. Explore university majors and career opportunity resources at SMHS
