Role of the School Counselor at Tully Junior-Senior High School


School counselors address the personal, academic and social concerns of students. The school counselor is an advocate for students and will  assist students with any issues they might have. We are here to listen and help students to solve their problems. School counselors work with students individually or in groups, and with parents.

School counselors counsel students, advocate for students, coordinate programs and activities, consult with teachers and parents, and educate students in the area of college and career readiness. As educators, we can teach children social skills, communication skills and how to solve social dilemmas.  The primary role of the school counselor is to help students to identify and achieve personal, academic, and career goals. Counselors also work closely with students and their families with course selections and college admissions.

We welcome all students to stop in to visit with us if there are any concerns that we may address.  We also encourage phone calls, email communication and meeting with parents.
