Amber Perrott
Smith Elementary School

Hello, my name is Amber Perrott I am excited about starting my journey here in Oakwood  Schools as the School Counselor at Smith Elementary. 

I will be helping students with issues affecting academics, social-emotional, and career exploration. I have worked in a variety of ways with students doing groups, classroom lessons and individual time with students. I will also be working as the testing coordinator for state testing.

I hope to be 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. 

Zones of Regulation

We are experiencing a lot of emotions right now, some good and some not so good.  How can we deal with all of these feelings?

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 to do if you're feeling worried

Coping During COVID-19

As we continue to take precautions to keep ourselves and one another healthy and safe during these unprecedented times, we want to make sure our students, families, and staff know the mental health and overall wellness of our students continues to be a priority. 

As a district school counseling team, we will continue to be available to support our students and our families as needs or concerns arise, just as we would be during a typical school day. Together, we stand strong, ready to demonstrate that No Lumberjack Is Alone.

What is a School Counselor?

School Counselors (previously referred to as Guidance Counselors) support all students in grades PreK-12 with academic achievement, social and emotional development and career planning. 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.
