My name is T.R. Tuggle. I'm the new mentalhealth counselor for the school district. I will be working with staff as well as students. I will focus on making sure that K-5 learners are receiving Social Emotional Learning lessons as well as also providing K-12 students with the Smarter, Safer Schools curriculum, that is in compliance with The Alaska Safe Children's Act.
I will also be working with staff and administration to ensure that we are the best trauma-informed/engaged school district in providing the very best care and education for our students. I am attaching a counseling referral form for teachers to complete if they have a student who needs referral to a counselor and a counseling permission form that must be signed by each parent or guardian before I can meet with the individual student or group of students. I will also be leaving copies of these forms with the office of each school.
Once the forms are signed, please let me know and I will pick the forms up on the days that I travel to your individual school. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email or call.
