Hello Sunrise Elementary Families,
Hello, I am Jeanne Lovell, ED. S, the new School Counselor at Sunrise Elementary. I have served in education as a teacher, counselor, and instructional specialist for 25 years. My service has taken me to four countries as well as Jacksonville and Orlando Fl.
As a School Counselor, I do not offer long term therapy. I do offer short term solution focused counseling. This type of counseling is used to ease frustration with peers or academic work. It usually takes 15-30 minutes. It is considered a short burst of counseling and the student leaves with a new skill to manage the situation should it arise again. Then, the student is walked back to class. If your child is dealing with family issues, I can speak to them, but I will recommend outside counseling agencies. This can be through your insurance or Medicaid.
Also, please read the school newsletter that is coming home with your child. I contribute articles that may be helpful to you as a parent. Remember, if your child is having difficulties, a great tool that you can use is to have a parent conference. We want you to be an advocate for your student! These conferences can be arranged with the teacher by phone, in person or send a note by your child.
I am so pleased to be at Sunrise with your children! Thank you for sending them to school prepared to learn!
Ms. Lovell, ED. S
