School Counselors

Dear Lake Forest Elementary Parents, Guardians, and Students,

My name is Erica Jeria, and I am pleased to introduce myself as the Certified School Counselor at Forest Lake Elementary!

About the School Counseling Program:

The school counseling program will be delivered to your child’s classes during designated times on select days throughout the school year. The lessons in the School Counseling Program will cover important and relevant childhood development issues and topics throughout following areas: social, personal, academic, and career awareness.

About the School Counseling Services:

Counseling services in my office operate primarily from a solution-focused perspective to help your student to overcome developmental, personal, academic, and social issues that they may encounter. My goal is for your child to learn to become an effective and efficient problem-solver and to gain skills that they will be able to apply to future life situations.
