Hello! I am India Brown, M.S., the School Counselor at Barton Chapel Elementary School. I am excited to work with such smart, talented, and ambitious students here at Barton Chapel. I will work to build the academic, career, and social/emotional needs of the students. I believe that all students have a special gift and my goal is to help unravel that gift. Elementary school is the first stop to a successful future!
This is my first year being a School Counselor. Previously I've worked in the field of social services and foster care for nearly 8 years. I am originally from Georgia. I attended Paine College, where I obtained my Bachelors of Art Degree in Sociology. I later attended Capella University and earned my Master of Science degree in School Counseling. I am a proud mother of 1 energetic son, whom is a joy to be around and keeps me fresh on my toes.
As School Counselor, I provide the following services, brief individual counseling, peer group counseling, meditation, etc. Please note that school counselors do not provide extensive services as a licensed therapist in the community.
Classroom guidance occurs once a month for each class and during this time, students learn about bullying prevention, kindness, problem resolution, healthy friendships, attendance, growth mindset, peer pressure, etc.
Once a week students in all grades participate in Teachers As Advisors. This lesson is presented by homeroom teachers during class time. The purpose is to address the social/emotional needs of the students in class. Topics include critical thinking, problem solving, communication, inclusion, etc.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.
