As guidance counselors, we spend our time working mainly in five main content areas as defined by the Oregon Department of Education’s Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Framework: Guidance Curriculum, Individual Planning, Responsive services, System Support and Integrations, and Student Advocacy. In other words we help students Learn to Learn (Academic Development), Learn to Live (Personal-Social Development), Learn to Work (Career Development) and Learn to Contribute (Community Involvement Development).
We love building partnerships and working closely with the families of Gardiner Middle School students and the Oregon City School District staff to help facilitate and implement our Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program. Please do not hesitate to call or email with any concerns you have regarding your student. We are here to help students and parents through this exciting and challenging times of transition.
