Ms. Strong is an Elementary School Counselor, 504 Coordinator, Backpack Buddies, Mckinney Vento Coordinator, and a member of the ASCA (American School Counselor Association). She encourages the use of the term School Counselor instead of Guidance Counselor due to how the roles and duties of the profession have evolved beyond guidance. This is not a complete list, but the roles and duties can include program planning, program implementation, data collection, team collaboration in the school improvement process, direct, and indirect counseling services. Ms. Strong also provides individual, group counseling services, and is trained in suicide prevention and risk assessment.
