School Counselor Information
Hello! My name is Emily Sharp. I am the school counselor at Heritage Elementary School. I am here Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday. My job is to help our students succeed even when life is hard. My office is a safe space where I meet with students to teach skills such as communication, coping, confidence, responsibility, and resilience.
I also connect families to community resources to meet their children’s physical needs: food, clothing, shoes, backpacks, healthcare, school supplies, etc. If your child needs to meet with me each week, or your family is in need of community services, you can talk to your child’s teacher or contact me directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

Students can meet with me regularly for counseling after their parent or guardian has signed a Counseling Permission Form. Forms can be sent home with your student or picked up in the office.
At Heritage we are a “Leader in Me” School, so together you and I can help your child to…
Be Proactive – think positive, take responsibility, use your power for good
Begin With the End in Mind – envision the results you want and then work hard to get there
Put First Things First – take care of the most important things first by planning and preparing for them
Think Win-Win – find the courage to take chances for the good of all
Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood – listen without judgment and then work on a solution
Synergize – reach out to others to learn from them; think outside the box
Sharpen the Saw – always strive to do better, keep learning, stay positive
I am so excited to be part of this amazing community. Thank you for everything you do to help our students succeed!
