During the months of Aug/Sept & again in Jan/Feb, Ms. Romero (counselor intern) and I are conducting short face to face conferences (minute meetings ) with all JYJ students in grades 1-5. During this time we ask students a series of questions that allows us to check in with the students, let them reflect about their school year so far, think about career choices, where to find the counselor and to let us know if they need to talk with us more in depth. So far the minute meeting concept is going very well. We are able to collect data (from using our iPads) and look at the information and decide what areas to work on in our school counseling program. Most of all we are happy that we are able to individually meet with all JYJ students!
