AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELOR IS A SPECIALIST:

Elementary school counselors are specialists in child growth and development who usually have a strong background in the behavioral sciences and human relations. They also possess a knowledge of the elementary school program which includes the curriculum, the learning process and school organization. All student support service workers address important needs- the school counselor is primarily concerned with the application of development principles in the school through counseling, consultation and coordination.

  • Children have dignity and worth as human beings.
  • Children learn best when they feel good about themselves and their relationships with others.
  • Children who understand their feelings are better able to control their behavior.
