Counselor's Corner

Dozier Elementary (January Edition)


Welcome to the Counselor's Corner with Mrs. Allen at Dozier Elementary. Here you'll learn about guidance lesson topics, campus activities, and other vital information you might need to know when it comes to your student's social emotional well-being.


January's Character Trait of the Month is perseverance. Perseverance is the ability to keep doing something no matter the obstacles that may come your way. In short, it means to never give up.

Ways you can show perseverance:

•Study and work hard to improve your grades.

•Try a new sport or skill that is difficult and don’t quit.

•Always finish what you start. Do not give up when things get tough.

•Try something again, even if you failed the first time. Remember you had to learn to walk before you could run.

Goal Setting

Self-efficacy refers to an individual's confidence in their ability to complete a task or achieve a goal if they work hard at something. People with strong self-efficacy are those who believe that they are capable of performing well. These people are more likely to view challenges as something to be mastered rather than avoided.

Guidance lessons this month will teach students to build strong self-efficacy by being able to goal set.

Lessons are in Nearpod (Codes):
