Hi Parents!  I am Patti Sjostrand, Bethel School Counselor.  Following is a description of my role at Bethel School.  Please feel free to call me if you have questions!  828 297-2240

As your school counselor I work to ensure that all students are educated with equal opportunities.  I provide support to encourage academic, personal/social and career development.

I act as a leader within the school and collaborate with the principal, teachers, staff and outside agencies.  I teach and co-teach a classroom guidance curriculum that meets the National Common Core and North Carolina State curriculum standards.

I conduct small group as well as individual counseling sessions that target the needs and concerns of students.  I also conduct and participate in parent conferences.

I am an advocate for ALL students and families and I work to bring together school, home and community!

I serve as ADHD Coordinator, 504 Coordinator, A-Team Coordinator, Exploratory Block Instructor, Classroom Guidance Teacher, Small Group Leader, Counselor,Community Resource Consultant (DSS, Oasis, WYN, among others), Student Services Coordinator (for eg. high school registration),Christmas Charity coordinator and Food Bank coordinator.

Thank-you for sharing your children with us.  I am very proud to be a part of Bethel School!

Twenty Tips for a Healthier, Happier Family by Tom Carr
1) TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT YOURSELF  How is your own self-esteem ?  Are you involved with others?  Do you join clubs, groups, etc. ?  Do you have any time just for you ?
2)  WORK AT DEVELOPING A STRONG, LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR SPOUSE  A strong relationship includes good communication, affection, compassion, honesty, acceptance, dependability, sense of humor, romance, patience and freedom.
3)  AFFECTIONATELY TOUCH EACH OF ONE OF YOUR CHILDREN EVERY DAY.
4)  PROVIDE A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL FOR YOUR CHILDREN.  The old saying, "Do as I say, not as I do", doesn't work.  Positive role-modeling is probably the most powerful discipline "tool" there is.
5)  BEGIN FAMILY TRADITIONS.  Children seldon remember what they received as a birthday present when they were ten years old but they will never forget such family traditions as special Christmas foods or always going on a picnic on the first day of spring!
