Davison Community Schools is proud to acknowledge that school counselors are an integral part of the educational process that enables all children to achieve success in school. We appreciate the contributions made by our counseling staff, the support shown to children and families, and the difference school counselors make in the lives of our children.
Professional school counselors are an integral part of the educational team that enables all children to achieve success in school. They are committed to helping children explore their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents as these traits relate to personal/social awareness and career exploration. School counselors work together with parents, staff and off-site professionals to help create safe harbors for children and all those who support them.
So…where will you find Davison school counselors? You’ll find them in the classroom delivering school counseling lessons, in a quiet space working with themed educational support groups, and in private providing individual support. You'll find them coordinating their expertise in response to critical incidents in the district. You’ll find them consulting and collaborating with other professionals in support of children, scheduling, making calls, writing letters, listening, helping in the hallways and at lunch checking in with students. You'll see them standing quietly by applauding as children tackle and accomplish tasks both great and small.
