News and updates from Mrs. Moore (Sowers)
What does a School Counselor do?
Hello! I am Andrea Sowers, the school counselor at Whitaker. This is my seventh year here and am originally from Winston-Salem. I am getting married September 15th and my name will be changed to Mrs. Moore. I'll still answer to Ms. Sowers. :)
I can help your child individually, in a small group, or in the classroom. I help parents find community resources and also manage the academically gifted program. If a parent would like to refer a child for counseling services, he/she can send me an email, call, or complete the counseling referral on my website.
I will be visiting classes once per month for classroom guidance lessons. I will be conducting small groups throughout the year.
I am trying something new this year. I will be focusing on zones of regulation, mindfulness, and growth mindset in all classes.
