Counseling

 

                                                        News from the Health Office

 

Welcome back to the 2017-18 school year.   My name is Mrs. Stephanie Trudeaux. I am the Park Elementary School Counselor.  I have a Master’s Degree in School Counseling K-12 from Adams State College and I am licensed with the State of Colorado as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Special Service Provider.   

 

After 18 years of being an elementary teacher, I transitioned into school counseling.  This is my 9th year as Park’s School Counselor. As a school counselor, I am active in building Park’s School culture of Mindful Learners by supporting students’ academic, personal/social development and career exploration through weekly classroom lessons.  These lessons are aligned with the Districts Mindsets and Behaviors for Postsecondary and Career Readiness Standards and Performance Indicators and Park’s Habits of a Mindful Learner. These lessons help build the foundational skills which are reinforced through the classroom and CREW lessons.   

 

This year, Park is fortunate to have Shea Walker, who will be helping with delivering the social emotional curriculum to classrooms.  She will be delivering curriculum to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th while I will be delivering curriculum to kindergarten, 1st, and 5th grade.    She will also be supporting teachers with CREW. In Kinder and 1st grade, classroom lessons will begin with emotional regulation and mindfulness lessons.  In 2nd through 5th grade, lessons will begin with self-exploration of interests and career pathways.  

 

Besides teaching the counseling curriculum, I am involved in the following services:

  •        Individual support and check-ins
  •        Small group skill, leadership, and support groups
  •        Consultations with parents and teachers
  •        Behavioral and academic interventions for students through MTSS (Multi Tier System of Support)  
  •        Referrals to outside agencies
  •        Girls on the Run site Liaison
  •        Coordinating services with School-Based Big Brothers Big Sisters

 

You may reach me through email at strudeaux@durango.k12.co.us or by phone at 970-247-3718 ext. 3528. You may refer students to me using the Park Elementary School
