Letter to Families | Fall 2016

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

As the counselor for the class of 2021, I look forward to working closely with you to ensure your student has a successful school year. If there is anything I can do to assist your family, feel free to contact me anytime.

Before moving to Colorado, I served as in intern on the adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit (IPU) at Children’s Hospital in Seattle, WA and graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. In my free time, I love to mountain bike with my husband, play with my puppy, and read just about anything.

I moved to Colorado Springs to pursue a Master’s degree in Counseling and Human Services from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs where I took classes in both School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and certified as a school counselor by the Colorado Department of Education. I am also a licensed professional counselor (LPC).

My goal is to create a positive and supportive environment conducive to learning and success for all students. I support Cheyenne Mountain High School’s emphasis on strong community involvement and encourage parents to be an integral part of the community at CMHS.

If you need to contact me with any questions or concerns, I can be reached by phone (719.475.6155 ext. 1020) or email. I would be happy to meet with you regarding any of your student’s needs.

 

Sincerely,

 

Christina Jurekovic

School Counselor, M.A., LPC, NCC

 

How School Counselors Support Students


 

 

American School Counseling Association 

Ethical Standards for School Counselors (2016) 

 

"School counselors are advocates, leaders, collaborators and consultants who create systemic change by providing equitable educational access and success by connecting their school counseling programs to the district’s mission and improvement plans. School counselors demonstrate their belief that all students have the ability to learn by advocating for an education system that provides optimal learning environments for all students."

 

"All students have the right to:

 

• Be respected, be treated with dignity and have access to a comprehensive school counseling program that advocates for and affirms all students from diverse populations including but not limited to: ethnic/racial identity, nationality, age, social class, economic status, abilities/disabilities, language, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression, family type, religious/spiritual identity, emancipated minors, wards of the state, homeless youth and incarcerated youth. School counselors as social-justice advocates support students from all backgrounds and circumstances and consult when their competence level requires additional support.

 

• Receive the information and support needed to move toward self-determination, self-development and affirmation within one’s group identities. Special care is given to improve overall educational outcomes for students who have been historically underserved in educational services.

 

• Receive critical, timely information on college, career and postsecondary options and understand
the full magnitude and meaning of how college and career readiness can have an impact on their educational choices and future opportunities.

 

• Privacy that should be honored to the greatest extent possible, while balancing other competing interests (e.g., best interests of students, safety of others, parental rights) and adhering to laws, policies and ethical standards pertaining to confidentiality and disclosure in the school setting.

 

• A safe school environment promoting autonomy and justice and free from abuse, bullying, harassment and other forms of violence." (ASCA, 2016)
