My promise to you as your student’s school counselor…
I will be an advocate for all students. I want not only my teachers to believe in the children they teach, but for my students to believe in themselves. There are certain things in life we can’t control. I promise to help my students learn and understand ways they can handle the unexpected and uncontrollable events. Most of all, I promise to make sure every student knows they are loved, they matter, and that they are enough.
School counselor responsibilities…
Throughout the school year, I will offer individual and small group services for all students. I am also available to provide parent consultations and community resource referrals. These services promote personal and social growth, which in turn, raise academic standards. All of our students will participate in guidance lessons each month. We will focus on various themes and activities. My lessons will encourage development in academics, career exploration, and positive personal, emotional, and social growth. We are a team, focused on what is best for our students, so your support and encouragement at home is greatly appreciated!
About Our School Counselor
Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jasmine Steele
I consider South Carolina home, but my family moved quite a bit, because my father was in the Air Force. I attended and graduated from Fort Dorchester High School, being an SRI Patriot was meant to be! My husband and I live in Summerville with our two dogs. We spend a lot of time outdoors, but I do enjoy curling up on the couch to read a good book or watch a funny movie.
The 2019-2020 school year was my first year as a school counselor! I am very excited to be part of the SRI family. Prior to becoming a Patriot, I taught kindergarten, third grade, fourth grade, and was a reading interventionist. I have worked with children since I was sixteen. I knew where my passion was at an early age, which led me to getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education at the College of Charleston. During my under graduate internship I decided I wanted to try and do more for my students. I then attended The Citadel Graduate College and received my Master’s Degree in Counselor Education.
