Counselor Corner

Mrs. Colunga

My name is Anne Colunga and I look forward to helping students with issues that may be affecting their academic, career, and personal/social interaction. I will work with students through individual, group, and classroom guidance lessons.
 
 
 
I am able to help students with:
 
  • Promoting positive attitudes among students towards self, family, peers and community.
  • Assisting students in learning how school performance relates to future opportunities.
  • Developing and delivering classroom guidance lessons that teach skills such as decision making, resolving conflict and respecting others.
  • Working with students, parents and school staff to identify learning needs and to design interventions to enhance student success.
  • Helping students to recognize and make the best of their abilities.
  • Providing support during a personal crisis. 
  •  Working with students on attendance issues.
  • Coordinating referrals to outside agencies.
  • Developing student career awareness.
  • Helping to create a safe and positive learning experience.
