Counseling

About Me:

My name is Susie Green and I am entering my fourth year as the counselor at Black Rock Elementary.  I have been a school counselor for twenty-two years and have enjoyed working with students, families, and staff members my entire career.  There is not a day that goes by where I am not amazed at the strength and resilience of students and families, to overcome any issues they may be facing. I live in Firestone, Colorado, am married, and have two children.  I enjoy being with my family, reading, shopping, and going to the movies.  I am looking forward to another great and rewarding year.

 

What a school counselor does:

The American School Counselor Association provides a summary of the role of a school counselor in their brochure entitled, “The Role of a School Counselor”.  ASCA summarizes the role as;  Professional School Counselors must have a minimum of a Master’s Degree in School Counseling and are challenged with the continual task of meeting the developmental needs of all students.  This task is best completed within the framework of a comprehensive school counseling program, which addresses; academic, career, and personal/social development of every student.
