Guidance Counselor, Jule DeDeaWelcome to Champion Elementary, my name is Jule DeDea and I am your School Counselor. Please don’t hesitate to call 386-258-4664 ext. 52397 or email me jkdedea@volusia.k12.fl.us with any of your concerns. I work with students to ensure a postive school experience.

Guidance services include:

  • Individual Counseling – available for anger management, loss, personal concerns.
  • Parent Support – conferences and referrals available as needed.
  • Character Education – daily lessons on morning broadcast to develop positive character traits.

Positive Self – Talk

Sometimes our anxiety causes us to make negative statements to ourselves. Our negative self-statements can cause anxiety. Positive self-talk is a simple strategy that involves creating and repeating several positive statements. Some examples of positive self-talk are:

  • I can do this.
  • I know this material.
  • I have practiced this material.
  • I’m going to do well on the test.

Bully Proofing Our School

What To Do When Others Are Bullied

  • Refuse to join in.
  • Speak out. Use words like: “Don’t treat him that way.”
  • Be a friend to the person who is being bullied.
  • Include students who are left out.

Empathy

Is our word for the month of August. Empathy means thinking about others.
