Hello May Street Dragons! My name is Mrs. Sorestad. I am currently subbing for Maureen Wiseman (Ms. Mo) as your Student Support Specialist! Just like the title says, my job is to be a support to students! I work with students, teachers, and parents to help students learn and succeed in school. My main focus is supporting the social and emotional needs of students.
I have been a school counselor for many years, mostly in the state of Washington. I have enjoyed working with elementary, middle school, and high school students. It is a joy to watch students learn about their own strengths and gifts and mature into amazing people!
Each week, students have a video assigned to them in my Google Classroom. These are "Second Step" lessons which teach important skills for handling strong feelings, getting along with others, and solving problems!
Students may access my virtual counseling office under "optional resources" in my Google Classroom. There are stories, games, and tools to help with relaxation available. Also, students can send an email to me by clicking the letter in the mailbox!
