School Counselor

Mrs. Rinn
  • My name is Megan Rinn. I am filled with joy to be returning for my second year as the School Counselor for Horace Mann School. I feel fortunate to be a member of this vibrant community of learners. 

    I am an advocate, educator, and source of support for every student at Horace Mann. I believe that children do well when they can, and it is my mission to support each student where they are and empower them to be their best self.

    Services:

    Classroom Lessons: I teach social/emotional and academic skills lessons in every classroom about once per month. Topics include: bullying prevention, calming stategies, skills for learning (focusing, listening), personal safety, 5th grade transition to Middle School, and much more!

    Small Groups: Parents or teachers can refer students for small group skills work. Small groups meet for 30 minutes per week, for about 8 weeks. Topics vary but may include: family change, emotional regulation, growth mindset, or friendship skills.

    Individual Skills Work: I meet with students one-on-one for a variety of reasons. Parents or teachers can refer students, or students can ask to see me on their own. Individual sessions might focus on worries, family change, making positive choices at school, or peer conflict. My individual work with students is not therapy, but it is confidential.  It is brief and solution-focused.
