Guidance and Counseling

  • ***Please note: Kristen Hoffner is our Guidance Counselor until the end of the school year***


    Counseling is an integral part of the Green Pines Elementary total educational program. It is a comprehensive program that includes sequential activities kindergarten through grade five.  The counseling program assists students in the development of skills and attitudes necessary to be successful learners!

    Counselors at Green Pines Elementary emphasize that the classroom is the child's first workplace. We help children realize that communication, decision making, interpersonal and career awareness skills are important to their success. Counselors are responsible for curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and system support.
