Counselor's Corner

MISSOURI AVENUE ELEMENTARY COUNSELOR

Ms. Webb

I am Sigrid Webb, the counselor at Missouri Avenue Elementary.  I attended Texas Tech University and received both my B.A. in Psychology and my M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology  from Tech.  I hold two N.M. State rehabilitation and school counseling licenses and am continually attending training to keep up to date on any issues relating  to students.

Our mission

is to develop a culture of excellence by cultivating character, celebrating diversity, creating community, and providing authentic personalized learning for all students to close the achievement gap and prepare students for college readiness and success in a global society.

The counseling programs of Roswell schools

strive to design and implement counseling programs that improve student outcomes in the academic, social and emotional, and college and career readiness domains. The counselor of each school utilizes the American School Counselor Association National Model in the development of comprehensive school counseling programs. The ASCA National Model guides school counselors in the development of school counseling programs that:
■■ are based on data-informed decision making and are delivered to all students systematically
■■ include a developmentally appropriate curriculum focused on the mindsets and
behaviors all students need for postsecondary readiness and success
■■ close achievement and opportunity gaps, which result in improved student achievement, attendance, and discipline 



Small group counseling will be determined and offered by need.  Small groups will begin in October and students will join a group with a similar grade level and meet once a week for approximately 30 minutes during the school day.  Due to instructor obligations, scheduling these group meetings will need to be driven by students who are needing the opportunity to discuss emotions, develop coping strategies and self-awareness, improve confidence, and hear from their peers that they are not alone.

How does anxiety affect a child?
Anxiety may present as fear or worry, but can also make children irritable and angry. Anxiety symptoms can also include trouble sleeping, as well as physical symptoms like fatigue, headaches, or stomachaches. Some anxious children keep their worries to themselves and, thus, the symptoms can be missed.
  1. Encourage your child to face his/her fears, not run away from them.
  2. Tell your child that it is okay to be imperfect.
  3. Focus on the positives.
  4. Schedule relaxing activities.
  5. Model approach behavior, self-care, and positive thinking.
  6. Reward your child's brave behaviors.
  7. Encourage good sleep hygiene.
