I'm so proud to be a Rusk PATRIOT!
Hello! My name is Stephanie Brown. I am the counselor at Rusk Elementary. My schedule alternates depending on the activities I have throughout the week. However, you can always leave me a message at 689-1731 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As the school counselor at Rusk, I will be working with Pre K to 6th grade students through my guidance lessons. These lessons are to help each student be successful while in school and later in life.
The monthly character traits are as follows:
September ~ Respect February ~ Honesty
October ~ Responsibility March ~ Diligence
November ~ Courage April ~ Fairness
December ~ Compassion May ~ Integrity
January ~ Citizenship
*Throughout the year, I also have monthly presentations by other organizations in the community. For example, Being Safe with Randall Upton from the Midland Rape Crisis Center, Dangers of Alcohol/Tobacco with PDAP (Palmer Drug Abuse Program), Melvin Adams with Stonegate and The Life Center (4th to 6th grade only). When these presentations are scheduled I will send home notice or a permission form.
INDIVIDUAL and SMALL GROUP COUNSELING
I may see a student upon student, teacher, parent or principal request. In these settings, I address a variety of concerns: peer pressure, divorce, stress, attendance, social skills, academic challenges, etc.
