     WHY AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELOR?
    "Today's young people are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse society, new technologies and expanding opportunities.  To help ensure that they are prepared to become the next generation of parents, workers, teachers and citizens, every student needs support, guidance and opportunities during childhood, a time of rapid growth and change.  Children face unique and diverse challenges, both personally and developmentally, that have an impact on academic achievement."
