Counseling

My name is Jamie Anderson and I am the school counselor at Osgood Kindergarten Center. I am thrilled to help lay the foundation for your son or daughter's academic experiences. I am ultimately here to help ALL students develop appropriate skills academically, personally, and socially as well as start building student's career awareness. I use various methods to nurture development including technology, theatre, music, dance, games, mindfulness, and yoga! I follow a comprehensive school counseling program to ensure students are succeeding. I will be in the classroom for large group presentations as well as pulling students for small group and individual lessons. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the school counseling program here at Osgood Kindergarten Center. I am excited to work with you and your child in this upcoming school year and will be happy to help you and your child with this difficult but exciting transition in to the first years of your child's education!
