What does the counselor do?

Hello, I am Pamela Barni, the counselor at Chief Shikellamy.  I am available to help you and your child have a successful school year.  As a school counselor I work with parents and students in different ways through a program of many services.  Each service is aimed at helping students learn and develop to their highest potential.  Some of the services in the school counseling program are:
  • Individual and group school counseling groups as time permits.
  • Classroom lessons to help children develop better personal, social, emotional, and career skills.
  • Keep information confidential, except in instances when doing so will endanger someone.
  • Being available to discuss concerns with students, parents, and school staff.
  • Assist in referrals to outside agencies when needed.

These are a few of the services I offer you and your child.  If you have questions or wish to see me about your child, please call me at school.  The number is 570-286-3729.  The best time to reach me is between 7:45 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
