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,
