My name is Sonya Shepherd and I am the counselor at Eiland. As a school counselor, I serve as a support person for students, staff members, and parents.

The Counseling Program . . .
The counseling program is vital to the elementary school because it provides guidance contact in a systematic way to all students. It is directed toward educational guidance with emphasis on direct contact with students, parents, and educational staff.

The Guidance Counselor . . .
