School Counselor

Hello!  My name is Jonelle Karasow, and I am the School Counselor at Ware Elementary.

I feel like I have the best job in the whole school!  I have loved getting to know the students, and I am 100% committed to seeing them succeed.  I am an Army spouse and really enjoy working in the military community.

Mission Statement:

The Ware Elementary School Counseling Program provides a comprehensive curriculum to meet the needs of all students. Our developmentally appropriate curriculum will address the academic, career, and personal/social/emotional needs of each student. Our school has the belief that all students can achieve and grow into life-long learners prepared to meet the demands of an increasingly diverse society. 

Counseling Services:

Classroom Guidance Lessons:
I reach the whole school population through teaching classroom guidance lessons each week.  Some topics covered include bullying, problem-solving steps, emotions, positive character traits, choices/consequences, etc.

Group Counseling:
Group Counseling is another way to help students grow.  Topics may include friendship, social skills, anxiety, deployment, etc.

Individual Counseling:
Students may be referred for individual sessions by a teacher/administrator, parent/guardian, or self-referrals.
