February is Friendship Month

February is Friendship Month

For the month of February, Mrs. Tate and I are conducting friendship lessons in the classrooms of grades Kg-4th grades.  5th grade is receiving lessons on middle school transition with learning the websites, Kahoot games, and practicing locker combinations.

The Friendship Theme is “The Key to being a Good Friend”.  Students may take a blank key template which I have by my bulletin board in the main hallway, and write down qualities they like to have in a friend.  For example, nice, loyal, friendly, kind, helpful and many more.  They may decorate the key and cut it out and return to a box by the bulletin board for me to add to the bulletin board.  This is a colorful month for friendship.  Below are pictures from my bulletin board.

I have my undergraduate degree in psychology from Mars Hill University (near Asheville, NC) and my graduate degree in counseling education from VCU.

I have three children and have been a stay-at-home mom for the past five years. My children are all elementary age; 3rd grade, 1st grade and Kindergarten and now is the time to return to what I love doing by easing in as a part-time counselor. I look forward to getting to know staff, students, and Echo Lake families. This is a wonderful school and community! I am at Echo Lake part-time. I am here full day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and half day on Fridays. I have started classroom guidance lessons in Kindergarten and Ist grade classes. We are learning how to be good students by listening carefully, always working hard and paying attention. I am the contact person for the International Baccalaureate Program at Moody Middle School for rising 5th graders. I am here for all students. I can see individual students from parent and teacher referral. I am happy to work with your child(ren).
