Welcome to Garretson Elementary Counselor's Corner!

My name is Janie Lundberg and I am very happy to be the Garretson Elementary School Counselor. I have Master of Science degree in School Counseling, from SDSU.  I also have Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Psychology.   I am a caring professional who works with students, parents, teachers, staff and the community.  My passion is to help all students achieve academic and social success.  I highly value parental input.  Please feel free to contact me with any comments, questions or concerns.  or (605)-594-3451 #2, #3           

School Counseling services are delivered in a variety of ways:           

  • Individual Counseling- I may work with students in a safe, positive and confidential setting to address issues that "get in the way" of school achievement.  Topics are based on the needs of the students and may include such areas as: understanding feelings, changing families/divorce, grief, stress, social skills, academics, bullying, problem-solving and decision-making.                                                                  
  • Small Group Counseling- A process where students sharing similar issues or concerns work together in a small group environment.  The group sessions typically last 20-30 minutes and are held for approximately 6 weeks.  Topics are based on the needs of the students and may include divorce/changing families, grief and loss, friendship and social skills, conflict resolution, anger management, self-esteem and stress-management. 
  • Classroom counseling Lessons- I implement K-5 classroom curriculum. Classroom lessons are regularly scheduled and may address such topics as: personal, social, academic, and career-related needs at the child's developmental level.  Topics may include self-esteem, tattling/reporting, responsibility, respect, teasing/bullying, friendship, cooperation, goal setting/decision making and peer pressure. Topics may be driven by the needs of the school population.
  • Responsive Services- I assist with immediate student needs (counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, referral and peer mediation).   
  • System Support- I am involved with school-wide program planning and implementation, state testing, consulting with other professionals and coordination of various supports for students and families including the Adult and High School Mentor Program.
