Welcome to K-6 School Counseling!

Hello! My name is Mrs. Price. I am so excited to be the School Counselor for North Iowa! A little about me...I graduated from Drake University with a Master's Degree in School Counseling. I have worked at DHS as a Protective Worker and Woodward Academy as a Substance Abuse Counselor, Case Manager and Individual and Family Counselor. I have been married for ten years to my husband Derick. We have three wonderful children~ Landon (9), Olivia (8) and Thomas (5). Derick is a 1993 graduate of North Iowa High School. We were very happy to move back here and for the opportunity to raise our children in the same place Derick grew up. I enjoy spending time with my family and some of my hobbies are photography, reading and playing softball.

I have several goals as the School Counselor. I will work to be proactive and preventative rather than reactive. I believe a child's self worth and belonging are important for them to be able to grow and achieve academically. Part of my job will be to promote a positive school environment.  I look forward to working with the students, staff, parents and community!

Below is a description of the School Counseling Program:

 
Why does my school have a counselor?
Elementary school counselors are master-degreed professionals who provide a school counseling program to support students, staff, parents and the community. School counselors develop a program that is comprehensive, developmental, and preventative. The program focuses on services that address academic, career, and personal/social development.
 
All professional school counselors are trained to provide these services in a variety of efficient and effective methods, including:
Guidance Curriculum: Classroom guidance, Teacher support, Group activities
Individual Student Planning: Short and Long-Term Goal Setting, Consult with parents and teachers regarding academic issues, School transitions
Responsive Services: Individual and small group counseling, Consultation, Referrals to community resources
System Support: Participation in school committees, Program management, Professional development
 
Children may face difficulties, which can prevent them from doing their best in school. These difficulties can include school adjustment issues, stress, family change, grief, fears, or difficulties with friendships. Having support through difficult times can be essential to a child’s educational success.
