Welcome to Mrs. Colberg’s Guidance Page!
Greetings! Meeting new students and seeing former students has already made the 2011-2012 school year great! Working with the students, faculty, parents, and the Deubrook community at large is wonderful, and I’m excited to discover what the 2011-2012 school year will bring! Here is some information about my job at Deubrook:
o The Counselor’s Role.
Sometimes, understanding the counselor’s role proves confusing. So, I’d like you to know how I serve the school and the students. First of all, classes K-6 receive weekly guidance times. Each month, we address a different theme that allows students to learn more about life skills. I conduct classroom discussions that emphasize various topics; for example, we’ve talked about academic success, relationships, self-esteem, and how to become helpful citizens. Students learn through group activities, sharing ideas, and examining how individual actions make a difference. Please look for what we’re discussing each month in my newsletter.
In addition, I am here to discuss students’ needs—of any kind. Please remember that while I’m here to help students have a better educational experience, I also love to share in their lives, interests, and achievements. Students can speak with me, in confidence, about anything that is important to them. Likewise, I welcome contact with parents should you wish to learn more about your children or to request assistance of any kind.
I am here for all of you!
