Amber Perrott
Smith Elementary School

Hello, my name is Mrs. Perrott.  I am proud to be a part of Oakwood  Schools as the School Counselor at Smith Elementary. 

I enjoy helping students with issues affecting academics, social-emotional needs and career exploration. I work in a variety of ways with students throughout the day holding groups, classroom lessons and individual time with students. I am in constant contact with teachers, administration and parent requests. I also serve as the testing coordinator for state testing.

I am able to help your child cope with issues that may arise, help them see themselves positively and teach strategies that will become valuable in life.  I hope to be a partner and a resource for all stakeholders in our school community. 

Thank you for being a partner in your child's education.

The Zones of Regulation provides strategies to help us become more aware of and control our emotions and impulses, manage our sensory needs, and improve our ability to solve conflicts.  

School Counselor Amber Perrott provides tips on working through these zones.

What is a School Counselor?

Ohio School Counselors are licensed and have completed an approved master’s program and an extensive internship. They develop and implement comprehensive school counseling programs that promote and enhance student success by collaborating with families, teachers and administrators.
