Ms. Sheffield’s School Counseling Philosophy:

Elementary school is a crucial time for children to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. The methods used in my school counseling program are beneficial to so many life skills, such as: 

  • communication skills 

  • decision-making skills

  • self-regulation skills

  • team-building skills

  • a positive self-image

  • an optimistic outlook for the future

  • goal-setting 

  • an awareness of their unique gifts, characteristics, and needs

  • and a desire to learn and achieve academically
