My name is Lisa McWherter. I am the school counselor at Glenwood Elementary School. The school counseling program includes large group instruction with grades K-5. Large group instruction (guidance class) includes personal, social, emotional, and academic instruction. There is an emphasis on life skills and how to live a positive, happy, and healthy life. For the upper grades, 6-8, the focus is academic achievement, social skills, and creating positive relationships.
One on one counseling and small group counseling is available to all students. Topics ranging from divorce, death, anger management, conflict resolution, and communication skills are discussed in small groups when requested.
