Hello, my name is Myra Brann and I am continuing my journey as a school counselor helping all students with issues that may be affecting their academics, career, and personal/social interactions. During the 2014-2015 school year, I completed my practicum at Olmos Elementary in the North East Independent School District. At Olmos I was able to work with students through individual, group, and classroom guidance lessons. 

I am currently a counselor at Walzem Elementary and I assist students in the following ways:
* Promoting positive attitudes among students towards self, family, peers and community.
* Assisting students in learning how school performance relates to future opportunities.
* Developing and delivering classroom guidance lessons that teach skills such as decision making, resolving conflict and respecting others.
* Working with students, parents and school staff to identify learning needs and to design interventions to enhance student success.
* Helping students to recognize and make the best of their abilities.
* Providing support during a personal crisis. 
* Developing student career awareness.
* Helping to create a safe and positive learning experience. 


Rationale Statement:  The School Counseling Program uses data-driven curriculum and individual/group counseling techniques to aide student success in the following domains: academic, career, and personal/social. 

Vision Statement:  My program vision is for every student to acquire the academic, career, and personal/social skills to be successful students and become responsible and productive citizens. 

Mission Statement:  My mission statements is to contribute positively and successfully to the educational, personal/social, and career development of all students.  Our collaborative team of counselors, staff, parents, and community members work together to create a supportive, safe, and caring atmosphere to promote high academic achievement.  Our goal is to help children develop skills to work to their fullest potential and prepare all students to be lifelong learners.
