Fairlawn Elementary Community School



Isabel M. Guzman

Welcome to Fairlawn Elementary’s Counselor’s Corner!
As the school counselor, I want to welcome you to our school and wish you a successful 2014-2015 school year.
The counseling program is an important part of our students’ curriculum.  As part of this program, I provide classroom presentations geared toward helping students better understand and enhance their learning and study skills, self-esteem, getting along with others, problem-solving skills, decision-making skills, and help establishing personal goals. I also work with some students in small groups or individually in order to offer support and help them with academic, emotional, behavioral, or learning needs.
I meet with parents and guardians regarding the same issues in order to assist them in helping their children be successful.
Here are some suggestions to help parents and students have a successful school year:

  • Establish daily homework routines;
  • Encourage and praise your child;
  • Help your child be organized;
  • Talk to your child about his or her school day;
  • Play with your child;
  • Join the PTA;
  • Communicate with your child’s teachers on a regular basis;
  • Know your child’s friends; and
  • Be a good role model.

I look forward to working with you and with the rest of our school staff.
You may contact me at 305-261-8880,  ext. 2117.
                                                    Thank you for your continued support,
                                                    Mrs. Guzman
