At the start of each school year at Schwenksville Elementary, the school counselor – Mrs. Stacia Hang, visits every classroom to discuss her role as counselor. Students in second grade participated in this discussion using items pulled from the bucket – each item relates in some way to her role as counselor.
Band Aid: A counselor helps you when your feelings are hurt.
Eraser: A counselor can help you learn from your mistakes.
Smiley Face: Counselors help students feel happy to be at school.
Magic Wand: Mrs. Hang does not have a magic wand – but, instead, works with students to make things better.
Star: A counselor helps you reach for the stars and achieve your goals!
Puzzle Piece: A counselor will help you solve problems when you are feeling puzzled.
