My name is Ruth Henríquez and this is my eleventh year in Academia Los Pinares as Elementary Counselor. It has been a blessing to serve parents and children in this area, trusting that God has been in control even through hardship.
It is an honor and privilege to work with parents and teachers in the instruction and guidance of our students. This school year will be full of new and unexpected challenges for all of our students and their parents. I will continue to serve by including character education through the Seesaw platform that the Preschool and Elementary students will be using and I will also be available when certain topics need to be addressed in a classroom throughout the year. I will also continue working together with learning support and spiritual life, to take care of any need your child may have in these areas.
I will continue meeting one on one and will hold group counseling in virtual format for now, but when we are cleared to come back to school, we will have in person sessions while keeping the biosafeguards for COVID 19 that are in place.
In these times of great trial, I would like to encourage you by reminding you we have a God who cares about our wellbeing and to whom we can call upon in times of need, casting our anxieties upon Him. It is my hope and prayer that we all are willing to let Him work in our lives throughout the school year and teach us what we need to learn both through struggles and peaceful times so we can be a living example of God’s faithfulness to the children.
I look forward to serving you and your family. If you have any questions regarding my counseling support, please don’t hesitate to call me in the elementary office or write me an email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
