What would you say if I handed you a plate with no food? A glass with no drink? A desk without a chair? A TV without a remote? Socks, but no shoes? A school with no school counselor? NO, THANK YOU!
Ms. Tines and Mrs. Travis are two rock star school counselors that make big impacts at Sutton Elementary everyday. In fact, it starts first thing in the morning. When kids get dropped off in the morning, Mrs. Travis is always waiting for them in front of the school. You can count on Ms. Tines to deliver all the important information the students need to know each day at morning assembly.
Both ladies are great influences on the students of Sutton Elementary. Kids look up to Ms. Tines and Mrs. Travis, and they should. These stars are the definition of good role models. They have positive attitudes and model for the students appropriate choices and interactions with fellow classmates.
The students at Sutton are Ms. Tines’s and Mrs. Travis’s first priority. They seem to ‘belong’ in Sutton Elementary. They really are just a perfect fit. Fit like…..the basketball to the hoop. The key to the lock. If Sutton was a bottle, the school counselors would the cap.
These two counselors make a positive impact on the school. I am very grateful to have them. They have made a big difference in the lives of the children and in Sutton Elementary. Every time someone talks with either of these counselors, Ms. Tines and Mrs. Travis have the opportunity to make an impact on their mental health. They show empathy and friendliness throughout their work. If someone is sad, the counselors are there. If someone has a problem, the counselors are there. If there is a problem, the counselors are there.
Heck, it sounds like the counselors are always there for the children!
I know one time I walked into the guidance office grumpy and sad. After 15 minutes of talking and reasoning, I walked out happy and bright. (If you know me, that was a difficult task for Mrs. Travis!)
Ms. Tines and Mrs. Travis are amazing guidance counselors and even better people in general. Sutton Elementary is blessed to have these two great women on our staff as school counselors! As a fifth grade student, I would like to thank you for all the time and effort you put into helping me in six years here at Sutton!
