Meadow Wood Elementary School Counseling Services

Our counselor, Lynne Luberger, implements a comprehensive Developmental Guidance Program as outlined by the Texas Education Agency's Comprehensive Guidance Programs for Texas Public Schools. The Guidance Program is an integral part of the total educational program and provides opportunities for all students to receive guidance and counseling services.

The guidance services are integrated into the existing school programs and have a developmental basis that help all students acquire and apply specific competencies and basic character traits.

The developmental curriculum is preventive in nature and addresses such issues as:

§  Self-confidence development

§  Motivation to achieve

§  Development of self esteem

§  Decision making, goal setting, problem solving skills

§  Interpersonal effectiveness

§  Communication skills

§  Cross cultural effectiveness

§  Responsible behaviors 


Classroom Guidance Lessons

Developmentally appropriate classroom guidance lessons are taught in all classes throughout the school year by the counselor. Through these lessons, a consistent school-wide message is conveyed pertaining to behavioral expectations and social interactions. The guidance lessons help to establish positive social norms that promote a safe, respectful school environment. Additionally, the entire staff at Meadow Wood focuses on assisting students in the development of prosocial skills.

Through the combined efforts of the counselor, the staff, and community, Meadow Wood has successfully met the requirements to earn the distinction as a NO PLACE FOR HATE school by the Anti-Defamation League for the 2012-2013, 2013-2014, and 2014-2015 school years.
