Tips, Techniques, & So Much More!


Welcome to your elementary school counselor community. Our content is created by a certified K-12 school counselor who knows the many hats that today’s counselors must wear.
The community, lesson plans, and resources are designed to meet a great variety of counselor needs. They’re not abstract theories from someone who hasn’t experienced the challenges firsthand; this content has been created by a school counselor and teacher with more than thirty years experience, who understands the evolving needs of today’s classroom and school campus.

With the help of my own family’s wide array of talents and technical savvy, K5 Counselors exists to help you. I’m profoundly grateful you’re here. Welcome!
