QUESTIONS TEACHERS SHOULD ASK
Are you a school teacher or responsible adult who thinks a student may need counseling?
These questions can help:
Is a student in your class disrupting teaching and learning?
Is a student in your class struggling academically?
Is a student in your class coming to school unkempt?
Is a student in your class frequently tardy or having excessive absences?
Is a student in your class having issues with ADHD? Anxiety? Overly shy?
Is a student in your class being bullied? Bullying others?
Is a student in your class having issues with healthy socialization?
Does a student in your class have parents going through a separation or divorce?
Is a student in your class being raised by grandparents? Other family members? In foster care?
Do you have a student with self-esteem problems?
Do you have a student who has physical complaints such as stomach aches?
A school superintendent contacted Improving Lives Counseling and said that some of her teachers were concerned that students would miss class time for counseling services. The teachers were concerned that test scores would be lower due to the lost class time.
Improving Lives Counseling then performed a study that examined the test scores of students who had missed class time for counseling services. In every case, these students had higher test scores after beginning the counseling sessions.
HELP ME WALK – BRANDON C. STONE
Hi, my name is Brandon C. Stone. I was in a car wreck on January 12, 2005. I was hit from behind while at a stop light. I didn’t even see it coming. I was hit by a man who was paranoid schizophrenic and was trying to kill himself and am now in a wheelchair. I have complete paralysis in my right leg and partial paralysis in my left leg. I would love an exoskeleton so I can walk around again.
If you appreciate your legs and can walk, please donate to my cause. The minimum you can donate is $5 due to the website. So if you can spare 5 bucks, that’s like 2 trips to Starbucks… please pass it on to me.
