Mrs. Susan Gomez, M.Ed.
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
For many families, the summer is full of fun and exciting new experiences, and children eagerly anticipate the fresh start of a new school year. As the counselor at Venus Elementary School, I want you to know that I understand life is not always ideal, and the new school year may not be what your child is most looking forward to. I am here to serve you and your child in any way I can! Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance.
Our district has made the decision to begin implementing the teaching of social emotional learning (SEL) this year, in hopes of assisting all children to reach their full potential. Be on the lookout for upcoming information on how this will look during the school day, and open the dialogue with your child about what skills they may be learning!
Each semester, I will also be offering small group sessions for those students with a need. Referrals will be done by teachers, so be sure to contact your child's teacher if you feel small group sessions may be beneficial.
