Mr. Chi Fomafung
My name is Chi Fomafung I am the new school counselor at Capitol Hill. I am excited to be here and look forward to the upcoming school year with excitement. Working with this age group is a passion of mine since it is a pivotal transitional period in their lives. Students go through transduce transition at home, in school and physically biologically. I will be working closely with the elementary counselor and the school social worker will collaborate to provide a strong student support team.
I work with students on individual bases for different reasons. Just to mention a few areas students might need individual counseling; such as struggling with peers, anger management, difficulties in the classroom, anxiety, etc. Referrals can be the counselor can be done by classroom teachers, parents, or through student self-referrals.
Small group counseling
I will also be facilitating small student groups throughout the year. The small group is usually a great way to have students that face similar challenges meet and help each other. It is an excellent way for students to come together and develop positive coping skills in a safe enriching setting. The topics covered in the small group varies depending on students’ needs.
I will be in the classrooms periodically to teach a series of social, emotional lessons to every student. The goal is to help empower students with the self-knowledge, coping skills, and life skills to help them become motivated learners, effective communicators, and good team members, creative people and responsible citizens. I will also use the classroom time to help prepare students for college by using Naviance which is a college and career planning website used throughout the districts.
