Elementary school years set the tone for developing the knowledge, attitudes and skill necessary for children to become healthy, competent and confident learners. Mt. Olive School counselors work as a team with the school staff, parents and the community to create a caring climate and atmosphere. By providing education, prevention, early identification and intervention, school counselors can help all children achieve academic and social success. An elementary school counselor holds a master's degree and a required state certification in school counseling. Maintaining certification includes on-going professional development to stay current with education reform and challenges facing today's students.
