Grow with Guidance
Who is Mrs. Schone?
Background: I have been an elementary guidance counselor for 10 years, all here in Westerville. Prior to coming to Westerville, I taught fourth and fifth grade in Pickerington. I am a proud mother of 3, a middle schooler and twin 10 year olds.
What does an elementary counselor do?
Many students come to school daily with issues or problems that make learning difficult. The guidance program focuses on promoting student success through prevention, intervention, collaboration and advocacy. My goal is to help each of our students to grow socially, emotionally, and academically to help them be successful adults.
Services I provide for our students:
Individual counseling is available to all students to discuss their personal, social, and academic needs.
Small Group Counseling
Small groups are provided as needed. Groups deal with topics such as, divorce/separation, anger, and self-esteem.
Classroom Guidance Lessons
School counselors conduct lessons on a variety of topics. Some may include, internet safety, bullying, transitions, responsibility, and acceptance.
I also work with parents and educators.
