Hello Standing Bear Families!
This will be my third year as the school counselor at Standing Bear, and my fifth year with Omaha Public Schools. Previously I taught 1st and 3rd grade in the building. I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Northwest Missouri State (Go Cats!) and my master's degree in PK-12 school counseling from Wayne State College. In my free time I enjoy traveling, reading, and enjoying the outdoors. I am looking forward to another fantastic school year with our amazing students, families, and staff! Please let me know how I can help your child have a successful year.
The Omaha Public Schools have a comprehensive, research driven, competency based program which provides students with academic, career, and social/emotional support. This program is designed to be both proactive and responsive to the unique needs of individual students.
Your elementary counselor will work with children through classroom curriculum,
small groups and individual counseling to help them:
- Achieve academic success
-Set future educational goals
-Develop career awareness
-Develop self-esteem and respect for others
-Build positive relationships
-Regulate emotion management
-Appreciate diverse cultures
-Learn about college
Please let me know if there are any additional ways I can help your child.
