Hello Belvidere families! I am so excited to be starting my 3rd year! Belvidere is such an amazing place to work and I thoroughly enjoy each moment spent with your children. My door is ALWAYS open, so I encourage you all to reach out whenever you need me!
What does Mrs. Tierney do?
Counseling services provided:
Classroom lessons --Throughout the year I will be going in to meet with students as a class to offer lessons on: Social, Emotional Learning (SEL), Character Education, School Success (study skills, organizational strategies, self-advocacy), conflict resolution-problem solving, etc.
1:1 Counseling -- meant for students to share their concerns or through a referral from parent/teacher/administration.
Small Groups -- all will be informed ahead of time if they would like to participate in a small group that I might be running. Groups may change year -to-year based on the needs of the students.
Collaboration/consultation with parents, teachers and administration
Referrals for community resources.
*Please be aware that school counseling is short term and solution-focused. Services are not meant to replace therapy and outside referrals may be suggested when deemed necessary.
Need to Talk?
As your school counselor, I am available to discuss pretty much anything! I am in the office during regular school hours from 7:50am - 2:30pm. I encourage students to find me any way they feel comfortable. They can find me in my office (Behind Mrs. G.), ask their teachers to contact me, fill out a form in the main office or simply email.
