Hello! My name is Mohamed Abdurahman and I am the Elementary school counselor at American Indian Magnet
School. I am so happy to be part of this amazing community of students, teachers, and families. I have a master's
degree in Education-school counseling from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. I have over 15 years of
experience working with students and families in k-12 setting. I love spending time outdoors, reading books, and
traveling. I am very excited to be at AIMS working with your students.
My role at AIMS is to help students develop the academic and social-emotional skills that will help them be
successful in school and in life. Our Comprehensive School Counseling Program is for every student at AIMS and
happens in a variety of ways.
Classroom Lessons: As part of the Counseling Program, I teach a series of classroom counseling lessons to all
student. The goal is to help empower students with the self-knowledge, coping, and life skills that will enable them
to become motivated learners, effective communicators, good team members, creative problem solvers, and
responsible citizens. I will meet the district Counselor Curriculum standards with learning targets in the areas of
social emotional learning, academic readiness, bully prevention, career exploration, post-secondary education
options and personal safety.
Small-Group Counseling: I facilitate small group students throughout the school year. Small groups usually meet
weekly for about 8 weeks. Small groups are an excellent way for your child to meet others, gain self-confidence,
and to develop positive coping skills in a safe and enriching setting. Teachers or parents may refer students to be
part of a group.
Individual Counseling: I also work with students individually for problems a student might present, such as
struggles with peers, difficulty coming to school, anger management, or difficulties in the classroom, on the
playground, or on the bus. Referrals for students to meet with a school counselor can be made by classroom
teachers, parents, or through student self-referral. I also be meet with students 1:1 for Personal Learning Plan.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any kind of question or concern about your child. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 651-744-1116.
