    As Milam Elementary’s school counselor, my goal is to provide every student with the resources and tools they need to promote a positive learning environment in the school. My goal is to empower all students in their personal, social, academic, and career development. With the help of our teachers, parents, administrators, nurses, and staff, students will be prepared with the skills they need in order to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, and outstanding citizens of our community. Along with that, they will have the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to succeed as life long learners.

     

    I Believe …

    vEach student has the right to learn.

    vEach teacher has the right to teach.

    vNo student shall keep other students from learning or keep teachers from teaching.

    vStudents are accountable for their behavior.
