Message From School Counselors
Kim Harper, Siara Jacobs, and Meredith Waddel
As school counselors, we are an integral part of the Riverfield curriculum. We meet weekly with students through Community Circle (K-5th grade with Kim Harper) and Awareness classes (6th-12th grade with Meredith Waddel). During these times, we discuss age-appropriate topics such as social skills, peer mediation, problem solving, body awareness, self concept, and educational/vocational planning.
We are also available to assist students with personal issues, including social/emotional concerns, academic guidance, and career exploration. Confidentiality is of utmost ethical importance and is always practiced unless there is a question of the safety of the student or others. Students may be referred to us by parents, teachers, or themselves.
Additionally, Kim is a state-certified school psychologist and educational diagnostician. She can conduct assessments to identify strengths and weaknesses in problem solving, processing, and academic skills in students age 6 and older.
For more information on the counseling department, you are welcome to email us at any time.
Kim, Siara, and Meredith
