Welcome

  • COUNSELOR MISSION

    The Incline Middle School Counseling Department mission is to support rigorous academics while cultivating positive character traits and promoting social-emotional learning in order to prepare students for the expectations of high school, college and career.

    COUNSELOR ROLE

    The counselor’s role is to help all students apply academic achievement strategies, manage emotions and apply interpersonal skills and plan for postsecondary options.  This is done through school wide programming, classroom lessons, group and individual counseling.

    It is my philosophy that families and schools are partners in a mutual effort toward a shared goal – supporting our students as learners achieving their highest potential.

    HOW, WHEN AND WHY TO SEE MY COUNSELOR…

    • Students may request to see the counselor by:
      • filling out a Counselor Request form (located next to the counselor office door) and leaving it in the “For Counselor” wall pocket
      • asking a teacher to make a referral (in an emergency)
      • in person before school, during passing or lunch, after school
    • Students are generally seen during their elective classes or PE/Computers unless it is an urgent matter
    • The counselor is here to help students with crisis, grief, coping strategies, study strategies, academic concerns, personal and social/peer situations, academic planning and goal setting.

    UNDERSTANDING CONFIDENTIALITY

    School counselors are expected to protect student confidentiality unless information is deemed to be of a “serious and foreseeable harm to the student or to others”, or it is legally required to breach confidentiality.

    • Serious and foreseeable harm includes but is not limited to:
      • A student’s health or safety is at risk
        • Someone is going to hurt the student
        • The student is going to hurt someone else
        • The student is going to hurt themselves (or put themselves in a dangerous situation)
      • Known or suspected child abuse or neglect must be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency
