Hi! My name is Lauren Krupa and this is my 7th year as the guidance counselor at Grenloch Terrace Early Childhood Center (GTECC). I am a graduate of Washington Township High School and have a Master of Education in School Counseling from Wilmington University.
My goal as the counselor here at GTECC is to help young students make the adjustment to formal schooling as non-threatening and comfortable as possible. The counselor is trained to help students realize their fullest potential as a unique person. I am here to aid in the successful development of the child as a whole. I approach this by providing planned programs in the classroom and small groups and/or counseling on an individual basis. The areas we will focus on include enhancing a student’s self-esteem, improving decision-making skills, and friendship skills.
I get to know all of the children through my monthly classroom guidance lessons. If you click on the link for "class calendar" to the left, you can see when I will be in your child's classroom.
Parents should also feel free to contact me or the classroom teacher with any concerns that may affect your child’s adjustment to school (i.e., separation, divorce, death of a loved one- including pets).
