I am Joanie Hauck, a full-time Licensed School Counselor at Discovery Elementary. I am here at Discovery to be a sounding board, a confidant, a mediator, a friend, a resource, and a support person for students, parents, and staff.
If your child is having trouble adjusting to school, it is likely they will be referred to me by their teachers. I often call parents with happy moments as well as assistance in walking through steps to get their children the support they need.
I believe teaching children to be strong in their own person and ideas is the best way to protect them from any impact of mean words.
Resiliency is the ability to recover from a harsh circumstance. I believe children gain resiliency with each connection to a person who believes in their abilities and their true humanity.
