Welcome to Mrs. Hood's School Counseling Page!
Hello Washington Wildcats! My name is Mrs. Shanna Hood, and I am excited to be serving Washington Elementary as the school counselor for the 2016-17 school year. I am here on Monday's, Wednesday's, and every other Friday. On the other days, I am the school counselor at Kennedy Elementary School.
This year you will also get to know Chelsie Gransee. Ms. Gransee is a school counseling intern from Minnesota State University - Mankato, and she will be joining me on Monday's and Wednesday's at Washington Elementary School from September 2016 until May 2017. Please give her a warm welcome!
My job as an elementary school counselor is to provide comprehensive counseling services to promote academic, personal/social, and career development through classroom lessons, small groups, and individual counseling. ISD 77 school counselors are a part of the Response to Intervention (RTI) multi-tiered support system to ensure all students are provided the support they need to be successful in school.
I truly enjoy working with all students and am privileged to be able to support student learning by helping students with their social, emotional, friendship, family change, and mental health needs.
If you have any questions or would like to visit about your child, please don't hesitate to contact me. I can be reached during the day by calling the main office and asking to speak with the school counselor, or before or after school I can be reached on my direct line. I am also always available via email.
It's a great day to be a Wildcat!
