Experience

I was lucky enough to have done my practicum at Kelly Middle School in Norwich, CT. I was then able to complete my internship at Windsor High School. Last year I was an Interim School Counselor at Hall High School in West Hartford, CT. I was also the Head Cross Country Coach at University of Saint Joseph for 4 years while completing my masters program. 



Bio

Dear Families,

 

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to the 2017-2018 school year. I am very excited joining the Voluntown Elementary School Staff. I am very excited to be working with the staff at VES and working more with you and your students. I wanted to take the time to inform you of some of the services and curriculum that will be put in place for this year.

 

Short term individual and group counseling will be offered to all students. If you would like your child to see me, just let me know! Students may also be referred to counseling groups by family and/or teachers. Group topics vary and are determined by the needs of the school. Topics can include but are not limited to friendship, anger, organization and test taking skills. Each week informal lunch groups to help children work on social skills are offered. Your child may be invited to lunch by some of the members in the group to serve as peer role models to help members learn appropriate and health social skills from others.

 

All students K-8 will be given developmental guidance lessons in their classrooms every other week. The lessons will include kindness, goal settings, career exploration and development, study skills, understanding feelings and emotions, mindfulness, relaxation skills for anxiety, understanding feelings and how to appropriately express them and healthy choices.

 

We will also continue to use restorative practices to promote positive and behavioral changes in our students. We will be doing this through "conference circles." As a reminder, conference circles are voluntary, vary in duration and size, and strive to include all those affected by the students’ behavior. We hope that with the learning and teaching of these skills we will continue to promote a positive and safe school climate and will benefit our students in the future. 

 

As a school counselor, privacy and confidentiality are important to me. I maintain confidential relationships with students, families, and faculty. I share information on a “need-to-know” basis only and will assess what information needs to be shared with the best interest of our students in mind!

 

I am looking forward to a great school year and am excited to get to know you and your students! Please do not hesitate to contact me either through phone or email!

 

Best,

 

Emily MacEwen
