Hello! My name is Katrina Brace and I have joined the Burris Elementary family this year as their school counselor. I am so excited about the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. I look forward to getting to know all of the students this year and working with them and their families.
My primary responsibility will be to help students with their academic, personal and social development. At times, school (& life) can be overwhelming. When this occurs, I will be available to meet with students individually or in small groups about worries, concerns or issues that may come up during the school day. I also hope to be a silent observer throughout the day to monitor student behaviors and give a helping hand whenever needed. I will collaborate with teachers and staff as well as consult with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all students and families at Burris Elementary.
Students can request to meet with me, be referred by teachers, administrators or parents. I encourage parents to reach out to discuss any concerns that they might have about their child while attending Burris Elementary.
My ultimate goal is to ensure that every student at Burris Elementary feels safe and cared for during the school day while also helping them to reach their personal, social and academic goals.
I’m looking forward to a great school year!
