Welcome Back!!

What a great week back it has been!! It's always a little hard getting adjusted to waking up early again and getting back in the routine of things, but I am excited to start another school year off at OHE! This summer I had some fun and was able to travel to Alaska and then Lake Tahoe! They were both absolutely gorgeous and gave me the relaxation I needed so I could come back ready for a new year!
Here are some pictures from the Alaskan cruise I went on with my family:













Here are some photos from my trip to Lake Tahoe with my boyfriend:






Just a small peak into my summer!

If you are new to OHE, welcome!! Please check out the different sections of my blog to find out more about what my role is as a school counselor on our campus. I will be in your child's classroom once every other week teaching guidance lessons on various topics. I do individual counseling for students who have bigger problems they can't solve on their own or with the help of family and friends. I also do small group counseling where students who have similar issues can all work together with me in a group while they eat lunch. I am in charge of our Social Emotional Learning program and also our No Place for Hate program. I do many other things on campus, but those are the main areas I serve. 

Please let me know if you ever need anything from me and look for my blog to come out hopefully every other week! I usually blog about what I am working on with your children in the classrooms, so you can stay in the loop with guidance counseling. I will also blog about tips for home or events that may be coming up that would be useful to you. 

I also have a half-time counseling partner at OHE, Mayra Rosales! She will be serving the dual language classes for individual/small group classrooms, but we will mix up the class for guidance lessons so they can all get to know both of us. Please let us know if you ever have any questions or need anything!! 


Here is a link to some great resources for helping your children with any "Back to School" anxiety they may experiencing! http://www.parenttoolkit.com/index.cfm?objectid=7988BCD0-51AB-11E5-8F900050569A5318
