Mrs. Angela Garvin

Hello!  My name is Angela Garvin and I'm your School Counselor.  As your School Counselor, I work with learners, educators/designers, support staff, parents/guardians, and members of the community.  I am an important part of a team that works to create a positive learning environment for ALL learners to support the mission of our school. 
 
My goal as a school counselor is to help ALL of our learners be successful.  By focusing on the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all diverse learners I hope to enhance and promote student learning.
 
One of my FAVORITE aspects of being a school counselor is coming into each learning space and facilitating guidance lessons.  Here is a list of some of the topics we will be working on this year:
 
*Identifying & Expressing Feelings
*Friendship
*Emotional Regulation
*Conflict Resolution
*Citizenship/Digital Citizenship
*Goal Setting
*Dealing with Stress
*Identifying Strengths/Interests 
 
In addition to facilitating Guidance in the classrooms, we will be rolling out some Habitudes, Citizenship Traits, and Life Principles each week that all of our learners will become familiar with.  Please see additional information on Character Development by clicking on the "LEEders Who Lead With Character" tab.  I would love for you to follow me on Twitter for some great parenting tips, weekly character recognition, and more!  @RJLeeCounselor
 
Our Guiding Purpose: We empower learners to positively impact the world by designing learning experiences that promote positive relationships, risk taking, and collaboration in a flexible environment.
