Hello Timber Creek families!
My name is Lanet Clark, and I am proud to be serving as your school counselor. I have been a school counselor for 16 years. Prior to that, I worked in the mental health field for four years. My number one priority is to help students and families have a successful and productive school year. Some of the services I provide are:
1. Classroom Lessons- I visit every classroom for a lesson every other week. I like to have a lot of fun in my classes, and we will do a lot of interactive and hands on learning. Some of the topics I often cover are conflict management skills, friendship skills, coping with feelings, safety, getting ready for junior high, and many more. In a nutshell, if it will help the kids get along better and be successful, I'm for it.
2. Community Referrals- If you should ever find a need for connections within the community, I am here to help. I often provide referral information for outside counseling services, as well as referrals to various agencies that are ready to help in a time of need.
3. Individual counselor visits- Sometimes students need a little extra help to get through their school day. Whether it is a bout of homesickness, or a conflict between friends, I am here to help. These issues can often be solved in a short time, and your student can get back to class with renewed focus and calmer feelings. Students can visit with me through self referral, teacher referral, or a parent request.
4. Building Test Coordinator- I coordinate state testing for the school in the Spring. I will need lots of help with test proctor volunteers at that time if you are interested!
Life can certainly be challenging and throw us curve balls from time to time! Should you ever need my assistance, please don't hesitate to call or send me an email. I am happy to assist you in any way I can. I am looking forward to another great year as a Titan!
