My name is Susan Gould and I am the Lombardy School Counselor. Along with supporting students when they are having difficulties; I also go to all of the class rooms and teach prosocial skills here at Lombardy. We learn about Conflict Resolution beginning in Kindergarten and continue this through 2nd grade with the help of our friendly frog Kelso. Using the Kelso Choices Curriculum kid’s begin to learn the difference between smaller problems that they can solve vs. larger problems that need the help of a grown up. Kelso also helps kids learn nine different problem solving strategies when faced with a conflict. In the older grades, we practice learning how to identify Triggers that cause us to feel different feelings and strategies to adjust our feelings back to a positive mindset using the Zones of Self-Regulation curriculum.
