Dear Barley Sheaf Families,
I joined the Barley Sheaf community in November of 2016 as the school counselor. I have my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Psychology and my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from The College of New Jersey. I have previously worked as a teacher in Hillsborough, NJ and a counselor in Montgomery Township Schools. I have three wonderful children of my own.
As the school counselor, my goal is to promote the social, emotional and educational growth of the students at Barley Sheaf. By meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations, I am working to meet the needs of the students in my care. I meet with students in individual, small group and classroom sessions to teach students how to understand and manage their emotions, develop skills for learning, and gain awareness of others’ feelings. We work together to problem solve and learn to make responsible decisions.
Students can contact me by filling out a referral slip in their classroom or telling their teachers they would like to make an appointment. Parents can also contact me through email using the e-mail ID: gcollins or phone at (908) 284 – 7596.
I look forward to getting to know each and every student at Barley Sheaf Elementary School.
