Welcome Tigers!

Here we go (again)!  I am thrilled to be serving the CMIT Elementary School community in the capacity of Professional School Counselor once again, now for our 2017-2018 school year together!

I am eager to partner with you, brainstorm and engage with you, in all areas of support of your children’s education. With focus on Academic, Career and Social/Emotional development, we will work together as a team to support our tigers to be successful during their time at CMIT, and beyond our school hallways.

The Elementary age is a critical time in learning and developing self-concepts and understanding capabilities. From tying one’s shoes to knowing how to research and write a formal essay, our scholars are ever-changing, growing and maturing, during their time in elementary school.

This year, we are going to delve deeply into the meaning of our school motto and work through focused Character Education to understand what it looks like, sounds like and feels like, when we “R.O.A.R” and are truly behaving and living as a CMIT Tiger.

Respect Others… Opt to be Scholarly… Act ResponsiblyReact with Kindness

I will be working with our students on their capacity for understanding Social Emotional Language (SEL) and how we communicate effectively with others, and within ourselves.

I will provide Individual Counseling, Group Counseling, Classroom Guidance, and also Parent Workshops this year. I will host opportunities to volunteer, as we have seen the greatest, strongest, most successful way to communicate the importance of school and education to our children is to show up. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems, Wow!

Whether you have minutes or hours, your ideas, your talents and your presence is critically important, and I will work with you to ensure you are able to share your unique skills and character with our community.

It is with great excitement that I get to introduce you all to ::drum roll::

Ms. Dionne Davis!

She is joining us at CMIT Elementary from now through December, in the capacity of a School Counseling Intern, and I know that you all are as thrilled as I am to have another person in our (regular) Counseling Department of 1 😉  She will work with groups, individuals, push in to classrooms for guidance lessons, and much more!  We welcome Ms. Davis and are so eager to utilize all of her skills and talents in our Tigers’ Den.
