School Counseling at Longview

Elementary School Counselors help students learn the skills and attitudes necessary to be successful learners and citizens. They emphasize to students that the classroom is their first workplace. Developing skills in communication, decision-making, interpersonal relationships, and career awareness are all important in life. In fact, they are also foundational in a counseling relationship. School counselors strive to build rapport and trust as they maintain the highest professionalism and follow their ethical code for confidentiality. The Williamson Elementary Counseling Team follows the American School Counseling Association’s national model as presented below. They especially strive to practice and model the targets of advocacy, leadership, collaboration, and systemic change.

The vision of the WCS Elementary School Counselors is to support the talent and character development of all students as they excel in academics, the arts, and athletics by shaping the climate of the school and the greater community.

WCS Elementary School Counselors will achieve its vision by providing exemplary programming which maximizes student development in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social growth.

Professional school counselors will deliver direct services through school counseling curriculum, student planning, and responsive services. Elementary school counselors will be evaluated on student growth and the professional’s ability to build relationships.

WCS Elementary School Counselors will advocate for all students by cultivating strong partnerships with families, school personnel, and the community to promote immediate and long term student success.
