My name is Olivia Sims, and I am one of the School Counselors at Kissam Elementary. This is my second year being at Kissam as a School Counselor. I have been a School Counselor for three years. Previously, I have taught first grade for two years, second grade for two years and third grade one year. I graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2012. In 2016, I graduated with my Master of Arts in School Counseling from the University of Texas as well.
It is my belief that every child has the abilty to learn and grow. Through Counseling, I will be able to provide services to students that meet their needs emotionally, socially, academically and behaviorally. I provide individual and small group counseling throughout the year. Also, the other Counselor and I teach Guidance Lessons in the library every week to the students. We teach Character Education through our Second Step Curriculum. We teach the students how to apply the character qualities to their every day lives.
If you would like to refer your child for Counseling, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 903-566-8334 Ext. 1203. It is truly an honor and a privilege to counsel at a wonderful place like Kissam Elementary.
