My name is Mrs. Hinds and my goal as a school counselor is to empower all students to lead satisfying and productive lives by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, career, personal, and social goals.
Welcome to Lynwood Middle School and the middle school experience where hormones are high and brain power is growing!
There are developmental changes in your children as well as school environmental changes. Your students undergo the transition from self-contained classroom in elementary to six different classrooms and teachers in middle school. Seventh grade is their first exposure to counselors and hopefully students will use them as a resource during their entire school experience in Lynwood.
Primary Role of the Middle School Counselor
Credentialed counselors support teachers, parents, administrators, and students whenever there are personal, social, cultural, and educational conflicts or concerns. We are advocates for our students, families and the community. Our goal is to assist students with developing a positive self-image and self-confidence, instructing them on how to use positive decision-making skills, and helping them set realistic short- and long-term post-secondary goals.
