Ms. K. Russell
Hello. My name is Ms. Russell. I am the Elementary Guidance Counselor at ECS. Guidance is a lot of fun! I teach students about empathy, self-esteem, conflict resolution, decision making, personal safety, school stress, making and keeping friends, bully prevention, study skills, and careers. We also talk about character education and how to be your very best. Most of this is done in classroom guidance, however, I also talk to students in small groups or indvidually. Every student has the opportunity to talk to the counselor. Teachers or parents can refer students or students can aslo make a requst to talk to the counselor. Simply stop in to make an appointment during your free time.
You can talk about things that upset you.
I also talk to Parents and teachers about how their children are doing in school, about getting along with peers, and how to help them grow to be the best they can be.
"As you think, so you are. As you dream, so you become. As you create your wishes, so they create you."
