Counselor Corner

Hello Sunset Families,

I am so thrilled to get to be here fulltime and have had the good fortune to already be acquainted with many of you. For those of you who are not sure who I am or what I do I want to take a minute to tell you about my role here at Sunset. The counselor’s role is to support the learning of all students by providing direct instruction and curriculum support of classroom and schoolwide social emotional learning. Social Emotional learning focuses on teaching skills in self awareness, self care, problem solving, and being a caring community member. I present a lesson in every class once a month plus providing weekly curriculum suggestions to teachers.

In addition I work with students in small groups to teach focusing and friendship skills. When students have situations outside of school that affect their academic and social experience I work with teachers to create plans to support their success and sometimes provide group support and occasional individual check-ins.

I am also available to talk to you about social, emotional or behavioral concerns you may have for your student.

I am honored and privileged to be part of such a vibrant learning community. I look forward to continuing to get to know you and your children as the year progresses,

Kindly Yours,

Mollie Hyman MS, Sunset Primary School Counselor
