Guidance Counselor—Merline Rocker

 

Joe M. Gillmore Elementary School

 

Hello!

My name is Merline Rocker and I am the guidance counselor at Joe M. Gillmore Elementary school.  I have taught kindergarten for nearly twelve years and have now accepted the counselor position. I really enjoy working with children and especially trying to help those children who have problems. 

 

We have kindergarten, first and second grades at our school.  There are approximately 500 boys and girls in attendance.  Each class has large group guidance every three weeks.  Each month is dedicated to a different character trait and we discuss how to implement that trait on a daily basis.

 

I am responsible for Red Ribbon Week activities and “Caught Being Kind” week and Character education.   I am the library assistant each morning which allows me the opportunity to greet and see children before actual classes begin.   I teach reading each day to a small group of students.  I am a member of our Building Based Student Support Team and IEP team.  I love working with technology and integrating it into my guidance presentations.
