Guidance in a Nutshell 

Welcome to Guidance


I hope all of you have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer and are gearing up for a great school year! Guidance classes will begin the first week of school and we will be covering our Character Traits of the month and important topics such as: Bullying, Making Friends, Team Building and many others throughout the school year.


A school counselor has many responsibilities. You will catch me most often in my classroom teaching guidance. I can also be found in my office/classroom talking with students, parents and volunteers. At times... I facilitate small groups with students and help them develop plans and set goals that will assist them in becoming the best that they can be.

My largest responsibility is to play a significant role in guiding each and every student at John Lawrence in finding their individual gifts, skills and knowing their own value and worth.
