• 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 mohamed.abdurahman@spps.org or by phone 651-744-1116.
