Greetings from the guidance department!
I’m Stephen Freeman and I am honored to be your child’s elementary school guidance counselor. My responsibilities include conducting individual and group counseling sessions, facilitating classroom discussions pertaining to character development, drug/alcohol awareness, positive social interactions and conflict resolution.
As an elementary school counselor, I work closely with the students, teaching staff, parents/guardians and a variety of specialists. I also coordinate the Child Study Team meetings for our school. Through the Child Study Team process, we work together to provide additional support and early detection of academic and/or behavioral difficulties that your child may be experiencing.
The guidance department also coordinates standardized testing to include the administration of the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) and the 4-Sight reading/math benchmarks assessment in third, fourth and fifth grades.
Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have regarding your child’s success at school.
“A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark.” ~ Ancient Chinese Proverb
