Natalie Jordan (School Counselor K-4)

I love being a School Counselor at ESA and look forward to another fun year! Through individual counseling, group counseling, classroom lessons, and parent consultations, I work to meet the social-emotional and academic needs of all students Kindergarten through 4th grade students at Envision Science Academy.
 
I received my Master's of Education in School Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My Bachelor's Degree is in Human Service Studies from Elon University with a minor in Early Childhood Education. When I am not at school, I enjoy taking walks with my dog Ollie, cooking, and spending time with my husband, family and friends.

Services for Students

Individual Counseling:

Counseling on an individual level will be short-term and focused on finding solutions to the social-emotional and/or academic concerns that a student, parent, or teacher identifies. Students will work with the counselor on an individual basis to set goals, identify potential solutions, and put those solutions into practice. Please note that we cannot provide therapy or long-term services.

Group Counseling:

Group Counseling is a collaborative process, where students with similar concerns or focus areas work together towards a common goal. A typical group consists of 4 to 6 students and meets once or twice a week for a total of 6 to 8 sessions.

Classroom Lessons:

School Counselor lessons are taught in each K-4 classroom biweekly and each 5th-8th classroom monthly. The lessons teach students skills, behaviors, and attitudes that will make them successful at Envision and beyond, including but not limited to coping skills, healthy friendships, study and academic skills, character education, bullying prevention, and conflict resolution.

Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS):

Envision Science Academy uses PBIS practices to support our students. All students are taught the SOAR expectations:

Show self-control
Own your learning
Act responsibly
Respect myself, others, and the environment

Students are also sorted into Houses - Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles, Bald Eagles, and White-Tailed Eagles - and can earn points for their house by going above and beyond these expectations.
