Hello, this is Beth Davies and I am here for my 2nd year at Saint Anthony Park and I am so excited to be back ! I have worked as an elementary counselor in St. Paul schools for 21 years. SPPS elementary counseling is based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) model focusing on school-wide efforts in the areas of: Academic, Personal/Social and Career readiness. This fall I have a counseling intern and here is a brief introduction from Norman:
Hello all: My Name is Norman Bell I am a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin River Falls, working on getting my masters degree in K-12 Educational Counseling. I will be interning here at Saint Anthony Elementary under the supervision and guidance of Beth Davies for the entire month of September. I look forward to establishing a positive relationship with every student that will be in attendance here at Saint Anthony. I will work with Ms Davies to ensure that every student understands the role of the school counselor as well as good times to come speak with the counselor. During the first month we will be working with students on Bullying Prevention in grades three, four, five.
Counselors meet with students individually, in small groups and also in the classrooms. Some topics covered include friendship skills, anti-bullying curriculum, organization, transition to middle school, goal setting, problem solving, and developing a respect for self and others.
I live in Minneapolis with my husband and 2 teenage sons and our sweet old dog. I enjoy nature, playing flute and reading. I especially enjoy cooking and eating good food with my family and friends.
Please feel free to contact me at 651-744-6870. or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish you a wonderful year!
