What does the school counselor do?
My name is Lynette Pfingsten and I am the counselor here at Wolf Creek Elementary. As a professional school counselor, my role is to assist students and their families in academic, social/emotional and career domains through classroom, small group, and individual counseling. I look forward to collaborating with you this school year!
Why should students talk with the school counselor?
The school counselor is always a great listener. I can help you celebrate good news, discover the solution to a problem, or just listen when you are sad. Below I have listed reasons others have come to my office.
- Friendship Problems
- Being teased or bullied
- Loss of a pet or family member
- Feelings of anger
- Divorce or changes in your family
- Learning to make new friends
- Setting goals
- Trouble with school work
- Understanding feelings
