As an elementary school counselor, Mrs. McCabe provides support to students, teachers, and parents with the overarching goal of student success. A primary duty of an elementary school counselor is to ensure that students have access to the resources necessary for academic and social emotional development.  Elementary school counselors work with youth both individually and in groups to develop academic and social emotional skills.  School counselors work with all students to maximize their academic and social emotional skills.
