I am super excited about this year, getting to reconnect with our Crockett family and meeting new families! I approach this position from a parent’s perspective as much as a counselor’s perspective. I encourage parents to come and speak with me about any issue that might be affecting their child at school. It is my pleasure to serve you!
Each student deserves to feel safe and supported while at school. Crockett Elementary’s goal is to provide an environment where students believe there are adults who care and are ready to assist when needed. Bullying – intentional, repeated and specific hurtful behaviors targeted toward one or more victims – obstructs a student feeling safe, loved and accepted.
Key factors to distinguish bullying from other forms of mean/negative behavior are that it is unprovoked and the physical or psychological intimidation occurs over and over again creating a pattern of harassment or abuse.
Neither bullying nor mean behaviors are acceptable. We want to be as proactive as possible to lessen their occurrence. One way we address undesirable behaviors is to teach appropriate social skills through intentional lessons with students in the classroom. All students participate at scheduled times with our school counselor who teaches lessons on positive, healthy communication, character traits, conflict resolution and the specific topic of bullying.
Consequences for a student who commits an act of harassment or bullying shall be unique to the individual incident and will vary in method and severity according to the nature of the behavior, the developmental age of the student, and the student’s history of problem behaviors.
Actions taken shall be designed to:
- Protect the victim of the act
- Correct the problem behavior
- Prevent another occurrence of the behavior
- Help the student understand how the other person feels
If a student needs help resolving a conflict or if a student thinks that he/she is being bullied, he/she needs to communicate with his/her teacher, our guidance counselors, or administration.
