Os conselheiros são parte integrante do nosso objetivo de educar a criança por completo. Eles implementam nosso programa social e emocional da pré-escola ao ensino médio, trabalhando com professores, pais e profissionais externos para ensinar os alunos sobre relacionamentos, resolução de conflitos e uma variedade de outras habilidades sociais e emocionais.
Além disso, os conselheiros do ensino médio auxiliam os alunos em seus planos acadêmicos para depois do ensino médio. Isso inclui orientar os alunos para decisões sobre programas e universidades e facilitar o processo de inscrição nas instituições escolhidas. Eles também incentivam os estudantes a participarem de feiras universitárias, para que o aluno possa encontrar a melhor universidade e programa de acordo com seus objetivos.
Counselors are an integral part of our objective to educate the whole child. They implement our social and emotional program from preschool to middle school, working with teachers, parents, and outside professionals to teach students about relationships, problem-solving, conflict resolution and a variety of other important social skills.
The counselors also participate as members of our Student Support Services team, working to increase differentiation, and continuously improve how we accommodate each student's needs at Pan American. Other activities include:
Additionally, our high school counselors assist students in making their higher education plans. This includes exposing students to a variety of universities and program options, as well as walking students through the college admissions process.
There are four counselors, one counseling assistant, and an intern.
The goal of counseling is to provide students with the social and emotional resources needed to become empathetic global learners.
At Pan American We use a program called Second Step to teach social and emotional skills This world-renowned program focuses on helping schools become learning environments rooted in empathy. The classes are administered by the classroom teacher or advisor and supervised by the counselor. In Middle and High school, students explore important age-appropriate topics in a class called "Life Skills."
Parents can schedule an appointment with the school counselors to address any concerns regarding student well-being. Classroom teachers may also request counselor participation in meetings with parents where academic and social and emotional aspects converge.
