  • Check-in’s with students grades K-5
  • Teacher consultation on individual students’ academic and behavioral needs
  • Providing resources surrounding our character education monthly themes.
  • Provide individual and small group school-based counseling on a short-term basis- all students can learn from counseling activities and can benefit from active participation. This includes the voluntary recess group, In Crowd
  • Provide mediation for students who need assistance with resolving conflicts
  • Collaborate with the Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) team on strategies as well as action plans in order to increase student success.
  • I&RS team consists of: Cheryl Hopper (Building administrator), Lisa Adams (Building Chair), (Your child’s classroom teacher)
  • Serve on the Child Study Team (CST) with assessing students and determining eligibility for special education and related services.
    • CST consists of: Alex Ames (Social Worker), Vinnette Williams (Speech/Language Pathologist) Susan Weiner-Hand (Occupational Therapy) and Ericka Heggins (Physical Therapist), Miya Thompson-Smith (Learning Consultant)
  • Assist families in finding resources within the school and community

I am available for consultation and/or individual appointments to discuss your child’s needs or concerns, as needed.

Each month, Edgemont focuses on a theme of Character Development. A list of the themes below:

  • September: Responsibility
  • October: Respect
  • November: Compassion
  • December: Generosity
  • January: Perseverance
  • February: Kindness
  • March: Honesty
  • April: Self-Control
  • May: Citizenship
  • June: Sportsmanship

Edgemont’s goal is to encourage and offer a safe environment where children learn the curriculum and socially acceptable ways to interact with each other with respect, honesty, compassion and self-control. Our teachers formulate classroom discussions, activities and lessons around the month’s theme as appropriate. Children are encouraged to stop and think about their decisions and find socially acceptable ways to problem solve in their environment. Additional support is often provided to students in need on an as needed basis.
