WHAT DOES A SCHOOL COUNSELOR DO?
The primary role of a school counselor is to help students learn and develop to their highest potential, socially, emotionally, and academically. Because there are so many situations that interfere with a child’s learning process, the Southeast counselors are here to help students work through those concerns. We provide students with early interventions as well as preventative strategies so that ALL students benefit. Counseling is a nonjudgemental, safe environment for everyone. The counselors are not disciplinarians or therapists. The primary services that are provided by the counselors include: classroom lessons, group counseling, and individual counseling.
