School Counselor's Corner Name: Diana B. Wiggins, M.S., Ed. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone number: 252-465-4091 Hi, I am Diana Wiggins, your child's school counselor. I work with the students at T. S. Cooper in many different settings including, small groups, meeting with students individually, and in Classroom Guidance lessons during their Connect classes each month. During ClassroomGuidance class we will discuss the character trait of the month, based on the traits found in the planners given to 3rd-5th grade students and on the folders given to Kindergarten - 2nd grade students. We will also discuss decision-making and problem-solving skills, communication skills, our PBIS matrix and behavior expectations for school, and spend time exploring the world of careers. I look forward to spending more time with the students in this setting. I will incorporate some of the arts in my lessons, supporting our A+ school program. I am excited about a new initiative we are a part of this year! Rachel's Challenge encourages kindness by all to all. The lessons will be included in classroom guidance activities and 4th and 5th graders will have the opportunity to join the KC Club, encouraging kindness and compassion through service projects. I am also the 504 Coordinator and serve on the following committees; Child Study Team, PTA, School Improvement Team, Data Team, and the PBIS Team. If you have concerns regarding your child's social, academic, or emotional development,please feel free to call me at any time or email me so that we can work together with the teachers and administration for the benefit of your child. I look forward to a great year!
