Counselor's Corner
What Does the School Counselor Do?

My name is Lynette Pfingsten and I am the counselor here at Wolf Creek Elementary. As a professional school counselor, my role is to assist students and their families in academic, social/emotional and career domains through classroom, small group and individual counseling. I look forward to collaborating with you this school year. 

Why should students talk with the school counselor?

The school counselor is always a great listener. I can help you celebrate good news, discover the solution to a problem, or just listen when you are sad. Below I have listed reasons others have come to my office.

  • Friendship Problems
  • Being teased or bullied
  • Loss of a pet or family member
  • Feelings of anger
  • Sadness
  • Divorce or changes in your family
  • Learning to make new friends
  • Setting goals
  • Trouble with school work
  • Worrying
  • Understanding feelings
