A counselor acts as a consultant when he assists in developing plans for meeting children's needs by bringing together information from parents, teachers, and other professionals. The counselor is a core member of Orchard Hill's problem-solving team and works closely with teachers, parents, and our AEA team to help meet the needs of students.
Elementary counselors are a valuable resource for parents. Parents are encouraged to visit with Mr. Berns to discuss any concerns they may have about their child. He can also make contacts with organizations within the community.
