Counselor's Corner


My name is Katherine Irish and I am the new counselor at Reginald Chavez Elementary. I am thrilled to be a member of this exceptional staff.

  • Due to construction, I am currently located in the library Monday – Friday. 

As your school counselor, I am here to offer material and emotional supports that will encourage your child to enjoy and be successful in school.  I look forward to working with you throughout the year and hope that you will contact or visit me with any needs or concerns.

Your child will attend counseling classes every other week. We will be learning about:

  • feelings
  • techniques to help focus
  • how to make friends
  • how to resolve conflicts
  • identification and resolution of bullying behaviors

I will also meet with students in small groups and individually. Health and wellness meetings are held weekly to address individual student needs.  I believe in the value of positive supports.

Attendance is very important. If your child is not in school, he or she will fall behind and it will become very difficult to catch up. Poor attendance creates life long problems for individuals that can be easily prevented. We are here to help.

I look forward to working with you!

Mrs. Katherine Irish
