• "Effective school counseling programs are a collaborative effort between the school counselor, parents and other educators to create an environment that promotes students achievement". 
    It is this goal I have in mind as I approach my work with students at Forwood Elementary; to provide a developmentally appropriate, standards based school counseling program aligned with ASCA (American School Counselor Association) National Model. My program focus is related to student growth in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development. I strive to motivate all students to learn in an environment that is safe, based on respect and has high expectations for student achievement.    
    I am available for consultation and offer referrals to community based support services. catherine.ward@bsd.k12.de.us or
