West Lyon Elementary School Counseling
Guidance: Second Step Social Skills Curriculum


This year, I have implemented the Second Step Social Skills Curriculum, in addition to Character Counts components.  This program helps promote school success, connectedness, safe and respectful school climate, emotion management, problem-solving skills, and social relatedness.

Grades: TK-6th grade

Students served: 500+

Three domains: Academic, Personal/Social, Career


Professional School Counselors work with all students to provide the best education and support for every student. The three specific areas that Professional School Counselor work with are Academic, Personal/Social and Career. All areas are covered throughout the year. I also provide individual counseling, group counseling, along with weekly classroom guidance lessons. Classroom guidance lessons include topics such as: study skills, assertiveness, focus/listening skills, making friends, feelings, anger management, pillars of character, listening, choices and consequences, peer pressure and self-esteem. Each grade is presented with age appropriate lessons that will benefit them in and out of school.
