Counselor's Corner by Ms. Morris
Welcome to the Counselor's Corner by Ms. Morris. I am so happy to be the school counselor at Westwood Primary. I have the joy of working with students through classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling. I also collaborate with school staff and parents in order to best meet the needs of students.
This is my 14th year in education. I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade and 3rd grade. I graduated with a Master's in Education from Stephen F. Austin University and a Master's in School Counseling from Lamar University. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my children, photography, and watching sports.
Classroom Guidance Lessons
I visit each classroom multiple times throughout the school year and have the chance to interact with every student during these lessons. Lessons typically last 30 minutes in length and cover topics such as school readiness skills, understanding feelings or self and others, problem solving, personal space, friendship skills, and careers.
Small Group Counseling
A variety of small groups are offered to students who may benefit from spending some extra time developing academic, social, or emotional skills along with their peers, and to students who are coping with similar life situations. Groups consist of 3-5 members and usually meet once a week for approximately 6 weeks.
Some students can benefit from one-on-one counseling regarding academic, social, or emotional challenges.
