Greetings! My name is Ms. S. Clay, and I am the school counselor at Barrington Place Elementary. The elementary years are a time when students begin to develop their academic self-concept and understand how they learn and build confidence in their abilities to be successful at school. It’s also a time when students develop decision-making and communication skills in addition to character values. As students grow and learn throughout the elementary years, they acquire and develop attitudes towards self, peers, school, social groups, and families.
Elementary school counselors are educators uniquely trained in learning strategies, child development, self-management, and social skills. As an elementary counselor, I implement a comprehensive school counseling program to support student success. This includes classroom guidance lessons that align with the Fort Bend ISD Profile of a Graduate, focusing upon knowledge, attitudes, and skills students need to acquire in support of academic, social/emotional, and career development. These skills serve as the foundation for future success.
I look forward to seeing your child when I visit classrooms this year. If you have additional questions or would prefer your child not participate in specific lessons, please contact me at 281-634-4040.
Ms. S. Clay
