My Job at Taylor Elementary  

At Taylor Elementary School I tell the students in a very simple way what my job is here: "My job is to help you to be the best person that you can possibly be." However, this short explanation entails many opportunities to do just that. I meet with every class once a week for a 30 minute lesson on topics such as respect, honesty, leadership, friendship, teamwork, perseverance, and many more life enhancing character traits. On a more individual basis, I also meet with kids one-on-one for brief counseling for the many trials and problems that can occupy a child's mind and emotions. 

Some of my other duties include assisting the process for evaluations and referrals for attention deficits, ongoing counseling resources in the community and working with many other community agencies that graciously assist a helping hand in divervse ways of enhancing our students' lives.
