Mrs. Kathleen McNeill
My goal is to help every student be successful in school and prepared for the future by providing guidance in problem solving, college & career readiness, and social skills.
I enjoy working with students, teachers, administrators, and parents to help students reach their full potential and discover their natural talents and abilities. I am available to listen to student concerns, advocate, and help children learn ways to deal effectively with academic and social issues they face as they grow and learn.
I connect with students in several ways; individual counseling, group sessions, or classroom guidance. In classroom guidance lessons, we discuss topics such as emotions, bullying, leadership skills, medicine safety, the world of work, getting along with peers, goal-setting, and transitioning to middle school.
I also work with students individually and in small groups by referral. Small group lessons focus on friendship building, "Uncle Sam's Kids" for students of military families, study skills, attendance issues, and other topics as they arise. If you have a concern about your child, you may email me through my contact page on this website or call the school and ask for Mrs. McNeill.
