My name is Andrea Baker and I am the 8th grade school counselor here at Sikeston Junior High. I love being the counselor for this grade level because it means that I have had a year to get to know each of my students. My job as a school counselor is to help students fine-tune their school and personal skills, to assist in character and social development, to help prepare them for high school and beyond, and to provide preventative and responsive services as a part of a comprehensive guidance and counseling program. I am in the classroom monthly to do guidance lessons and take appointments for after-school counseling if needed.
Please feel free to contact me at the school at any time with questions and concerns. As a parent/counselor team, I am certain that we can prepare our students to face any challanges that life gives them with resolve and readiness.
