Elementary School Counselor
Hello Parents, Students, and Teachers,
My name is Carmen Le Roux and I am the Elementary School Counselor at The American School. I have the joy of working with students through in-classroom social-emotional learning sessions, small group counseling, and individual counseling. I also collaborate with school staff and parents in order to best meet the needs of our students.
Classroom Social-Emotional Learning Sessions
I visit each classroom multiple times throughout the school year and have the chance to interact with every student during these lessons. Lessons typically last 30 minutes in length and cover topics such as school readiness skills, understanding feelings of self and others, problem solving skills, friendship skills, and study skills.
Small Group Counseling
A variety of small groups are offered to students who may benefit from spending some extra time developing academic, social, or emotional skills along with their peers, and to students who are coping with similar life situations. Groups can have anywhere from 3 to 12 members and usually meet once a week outside of classroom time for several weeks.
Some students can benefit from one-on-one counseling regarding academic, social, or emotional challenges.
