CounselorWelcome to Calhoun Middle School! I currently work with 8th graders with the last names beginning A-L, and all 7th graders.I believe that school cultures should provide students with the ability to grow academically, emotionally, creatively, and physically within a safe and nurturing environment. As a school counselor, I will work with students to discover their various potentials and to learn the joys of becoming lifelong learners. I believe that diversity is to be respected and appreciated as the school fosters unity among our students, faculty, staff and community.
The MYP Fundamental Concepts describe the learning environment in which the student is operating and provide schools with guidance on developing their school culture.
· Holistic Learning- the notion that all knowledge is interrelated and that the curriculum should cater to the development of the whole person.
· Intercultural Awareness- the notion that school communities should encourage and promote international-mindedness by engaging with ad exploring other cultures, a key feature of international education as reflected in the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.· Communication- the notion that schools should encourage open and effective communication, important skills that contribute to international understanding as exemplified by the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.The Calhoun Middle School counseling program supports these fundamental concepts of the IB MYP program.
