Welcome To The School Counselor's Page

  • Welcome to my counseling web page.  My name is Mrs. Meghan Dwyer, and this is my fifth year working as a school counselor. I began working at R. J. Vial Elementary School in February of 2014.  I am looking forward to working with all of the students at R. J. Vial Elementary School this year. I will teach classroom counseling lessons, lead many small group counseling sessions, and conduct individual counseling sessions throughout the school yearIn addition, I will be creating weekly Bully Free Friday (BFF) lessons for the students, which will be completed during morning meetings on Fridays with their homeroom teachers.

    This year we will also be continuing with our Jaguar Buddies club, which will be once again be open to all students in 3rd-5th grade. Jaguar Buddies is an anti-bullying club that promotes kindness towards peers, a positive school climate, and carry out R. J. Vial's OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program's goals and principles.

    During the last week of each month (Tuesday-Friday), I conduct classroom counseling lessons during enrichment periods. I am able to see each homeroom class once per month.

    During the first few weeks of the month, I meet with grade level counseling groups (each grade meets once a week), see students individually during their enrichment periods, and consult with teachers during their planning periods. 

    I am available most afternoons for parent meetings, phone calls, etc. I use the afternoons to catch up on any emails and paperwork, meet with administration, plan for my group and classroom counseling lessons, prepare for weekly SBLC/RTI meetings, etc.
