Hi, my name is Carolyn Coffey and I am the Counselor here at TJES. As an advocate for your child, it is my privilege to work with you and your child throughout the elementary years. As children go through school they are faced with many challenges such as academic, social, and personal concerns. It is my mission to reach out to children and families by being a resource at those times.
Some of those resources that I offer are individual and group counseling. Some topics are friendship, grief, divorce, study skills, etc.
At different times throughout the year, our community will provide our school with needed resources for families. Some of those resources are school supplies, coats for kids, clothes for kids, and a locally church sponsored program called Christmas Child. Counseling is voluntary and confidential. Parents may refer their child, Teachers/administrators may refer children, and yes, even children can refer themselves if they would like help in any aspect of their social/emotional school development. Please don't hesitate to call me here at school if I can be of help.
Thanks and I look forward to working with your child,
