School Counseling

  • A school guidance counselor works in a school or classroom setting to provide counseling to students; this can be done in a group or individual basis. They work with students in areas of academic achievement, career development, bullying prevention, social emotion well-being and persistence to graduation. As your Child Guidance Specialist at Squires, I will provide regular classroom lessons for every grade level that promote safety, empathy towards others and strategies for becoming a responsible student and citizen.
