Notes from the Counselor
Hi! My name is Mrs. Eatwell.
I am the counselor at Flower Mound Elementary.
What does the elementary counselor do?
I teach in each classroom on topics such as self esteem, decision making, problem solving, conflict resolution, friendship, and communication skills. I also assist with anti-drug education, child development, and safety information. I teach test taking, study skills and organization.
Do you have small groups?
Yes, I meet with small groups of students as needed for usually 6-8 sessions. We work on conflict resolution, problem-solving, making friends and coping with stressful situations. Students like Group and usually ask to come back again.
Do you see individual students?
Yes, I see students who are upset, sad, or angry right away. We work on problem-solving, identifying feelings, and making choices. We may see each other for a follow-up visit. Sometimes parents or teachers ask me to see students for a few visits to work on a particular issue and I try to see the students several times during the year to watch for improvement.
What do you do for parents?
I am available for parent conferences and phone conferences to share information about students and how they are coping with school. I have books and information on parenting topics. I can usually obtain information on any issues parents may have. If you have any concerns please call or come by my office.
How do I contact the counselor?
