Middle School Counseling
The Middle School Counseling Department at Colegio Roosevelt has student wellness as it's goal. The Middle School counselors work to implement programs and interventions that embody the mission of the school and can be incorporated into the lives of our students every day.
Our mission is to empower our students... Students are empowered when they have knowledge of self and the ability to positively interact with others. Counselors empower students by helping them to learn about themselves through Guidance lessons, individual and group meetings, and by providing targeted interventions to meet the needs of each individual student. During their years in Middle School, students engage in a guidance program with activities and lessons that focus on self-awareness, mindfulness, explorating strengths, increasing positive communication skills, and community/friendship building. We believe that with increased emotional intelligence our students are empowered for success in our future.
to pursue their passion for learning... Counselors do this every day by meeting with students to help them with difficulties they may be having in class, mediating between students, advocating for students with teachers, monitoring student progress and developing individualized action plans for students to find success. The Middle School Team works together to help students to overcome obstacles and pursue their passions.
lead lives of integrity... Above all, integrity involves being true to yourself. It is the state of being whole. Counselors work with students in areas such as decision making, peer communication and conflict resolution. Throughout Middle School, students are empowered with choice and learn to act with thoughtfulness, maturity and confidence. Our goal is to help students make decisions and take action which not only benefits themselves, but to think of their larger community and society and strive to not harm or disadvantage others.
and develop socially responsible solutions. When students make effective decisions that are balanced and fair for themselves and others, they are being socially responsible. Students engage in activities that teach empathy, kindness, mindfulness, and a strengths based approach to problem solving with a growth mindset. By approaching problems from this framework, students find socially responsible and sustainable solutions.
Colegio Roosevelt has two Middle School Counselors to help support students with academic, personal and social concerns. Both Counselors focus on helping students through group conflict meditations, 1:1 meetings to discuss personal and social concerns, meetings with families.
