Greetings Rough Rider Family,

My name is Mr. Erwin Smith, and I am one of the school counselors here at Roosevelt High School. Meeting the diverse needs of ALL of our students is of the utmost importance. Our school counseling program focuses on the social, emotional, academic, and career development needs of EVERY student. The role of a school counselor is hard to understand, but can be simplified as a support for students, families, and staff. This means the school counselor is here to assist with the needs of the student or the family. Programs include the following: 

Individual Counseling: This can occur in two different formats.

"Pep Talk" - These occur as needed to address a temporary need of your student. My goal is to create a safe space to work through problems.

Individual Student Planning - Sometimes a student requires one-on-one counseling services in order to work through various difficulties. Topics include anger, stress management, anxiety, academic struggles, in-class behavior, low self-esteem, etc.

Group Counseling: Small groups are established as needed for various concerns such as death, divorce, anger, self-esteem, peer relations, etc. 

Classroom Lessons: Classroom counseling lessons occur as needed. 

Immediate Student Support: Sometimes our students have rough days and sometimes a break in a different environment can turn a day around. This occurs as needed. 

Community Resources: Food, clothing, school supplies, housing information, counseling, etc.

Thank you for entrusting us with your student(s). If you have any questions or need any assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or schedule a meeting with me by using at the link
