Counseling Corner

Welcome to the Counseling Corner  

I am Becky Charsky the School Counselor at Newfield Elementary School.  As a School Counselor I truly enjoy working with your students. It is such a pleasure to visit their classes every month, work with students in groups and conduct individual counseling sessions.  My intention is to help your students succeed in their academic goals as well as support social and emotional growth throughout the school year.  

During the whole class presentations, I focus on the PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) Monthly Themes. The monthly themes are listed on this page under Announcements. All of my counseling groups run for six sessions.  I will be starting new groups throughout the school year and I enjoy working with students individually.  All of my activities focus on helping students learn ways to build positive social skills, gain confidence in their ability to interact with other students and learn to deal with conflicts constructively.

Please call the counseling office 607.564.9955 ext. 1110 if you have any questions or concerns. You can also email me by clicking here.  I am thrilled to be working with your students and hope to meet all the families that make Newfield such a wonderful community.
