North Canton Primary School Counseling

 What does a School Counselor do?

  • Works with ALL students

  • Helps students develop socially, emotionally, and academically

  • Connects with students through individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom guidance lessons

  • Promotes individual differences among students

  • Works in collaboration and consultation with parents, teachers, and administrators

  • Provides families with support and assistance as needed

  • Collaborates with outside services to provide continuity of care.  

Students and parents are ensured confidentiality. That is, all conversations will stay between the student and I.
