My name is Andrea Baker and this year I am the 8th grade counselor here at Sikeston Junior High. My job as a school counselor is to help fine-tune students’ academic 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.
I send emails home regularly to all 8th grade parents to help keep them involved in what we do. This is also a great resource for parents to utilize for assistance in recognizing and meeting their student’s individual needs.
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.
