Classroom Counseling Lessons

  • Dear GTECC Parent(s)/Guardian(s),


    My name is Lauren Krupa and I am the school counselor here at GTECC. I have already met with your child’s class to introduce myself to them as a helper and a friend in their school. I have the pleasure of going into your child’s classroom each month for 30 minute lessons on topics such as personal space and self-control, how to be a good friend, personal safety, and other social-emotional education topics. I am also available for individual and small group counseling for issues such as anxiety, social skills, and support for family and/or school issues. I also teach the children the appropriate behavior to keep them safe on the bus; please feel free to call me if your child has any issues on the school bus so that I can help.

     October is National Bullying Prevention Month. We will be learning about celebrating our differences. The children will watch The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin and we will discuss the story together. We will also talk about what bullying is and is not:

    Is it Bullying?


    Please feel free to call me at any time concerning your child or with any concerns that may affect child’s adjustment to school (i.e., separation, divorce, death of a loved one- including pets, bus issues, anxiety).
