Watauga Counselor Role

Classroom/Small Group Guidance Instruction

Mr. Tyler will meet with each homeroom class once a month for classroom guidance lessons. Small groups will be conducted at various times throughout the school year for students that would benefit. The curriculum taught is age appropriate and meets the TN Department of Education's standards for school counseling. The four domains are Personal/Social, Academic, and Career Development. This is a time when students learn important life skills necessary for a successful, healthy life and career. 

Individual Counseling

Students may see the school counselor on an individual and short term basis. Intensive counseling is not appropriate for the school setting, but I am happy to give contact information to you for outside counselors in the area. The student may be referred by a teacher, parent, administrator, or themselves. 

If your student comes home and tells you they have met with the school counselor, please be assured they are not in trouble! School counselors do not punish and are often a step toward improving behaviors before discipline or consequences are required.
