Greetings! I am Ms. Tonya Jones, the school counselor at Cowan Road Elementary. I am excited to serve the students, parents, and school staff of our great school through a comprehensive school counseling program by following the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model. As a professional school counselor at CRE my mission is the provide students with information and services that will help them succeed academically, personally, socially and to develop career awareness so that they will be productive citizens in the world today. My roles are to serve as an advocate and support to all students, provide services, teach lessons, and give interventions based on student needs. I conduct classroom counseling, small group counseling, and individual counseling. I also work collaboratively with parents and teachers to meet the individual needs of students, and help students develop positive character toward self, family and community. I truly believe that school counselors make a world of difference in the lives of students. I am dedicated to the students of CRE and will do my best to make sure that they receive the tools that they need to be successful.
