Counselors are specialists in child growth and development who usually have a strong background in behavioral sciences and human relations. They also possess a knowledge of school programs which include the curriculum, the learning process and school organization. All student support service workers address important needs -- the school counselor focuses upon the preventive aspects of guidance. The school counselor is primarily concerned with the application of developmental principals in the school through counseling, consultation and coordination.


The elementary school counselor at Avella is Mrs. Yvonne Federouch. She offers students small group activities as well as brief individual counseling and classroom lessons to address a variety of concerns related to school. Academic topics may include organizational skills, goal setting, career exploration, and stress management. Personal/ social issues include friendship skills, communication skills, individual differences, decision making skills, conflict resolution and character development.


Mrs. Federouch collaborates with teachers daily to work in the best interest of all students. The counselor also coordinates the Elementary Student Assistance Team in the building. This is our district's system of team collaboration to insure the success of all students. She is available to meet with parents individually. Please feel free to contact her if your child is experiencing difficulties that may have an impact on academic performance such as academic stress, grief or loss, changing family situations, peer relations, etc.
