My name is Carrie Nelson and I am pleased to be the school counselor for Stadium View. The role of the school counselor is to support students’ academic success and contribute to a positive school climate. We do that in a number of ways:

•             Credit evaluations so students know if they are on-track to graduate

•             Meeting with students to discuss diploma/GED choices

•             College and financial aid application assistance

•             Classroom lessons about credits, career planning, applying for jobs, interviewing, and dealing with difficulties

•             Submitting grades and student records to the next school to help ensure a smooth transition

 

This year the counseling department will be beginning a special focus on student effort. We will be focusing on effort both in individual check-and-connects, and in the classroom. Students will be self-assessing their effort in their classroom work and their individual school/career planning. Reflecting on effort has been shown to improve student performance and confidence, in and out of the classroom.

 

I look forward to helping students this year during their time at Stadium View, and as they transition on.
