About the School Counselor:

My name is Christie McCubbin. I graduated from Stevenson University with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Services & Psychology.  I graduated with my Master's Degree from Loyola University in School Counseling. I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor. The 2021-2022 school year will be my 12th year as an elementary school counselor for Carroll County Pubic Schools. This will also be my 5th year at Ebb Valley. I am excited to continue to be apart of the Ebb Valley family. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me, if you need me!

What is School Counseling?

A School Counselor is a Master's level, nationally certified, caring professional who works with all students, parents, teachers, staff and the community, in order to help every student achieve academic and social success. 

School Counseling Services

  • Classroom Counseling Curriculum: I teach classroom lessons to all students on topics such as social/emotional, academic, and career needs.

  • Individual Student Planning: I assist students with goal formation/planning in the areas of academic, behavioral, career as well as social/emotional well being.

  • Responsive Services: I meet immediate student needs: counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, referral, group counseling and peer mediation.

  • System Support: I implement school-wide programs (such as PBIS), consult with other professionals, and coordinate various supports for students and families.

Delivery of School Counseling Services

  • Individual Counseling: I provide a safe and confidential environment for students to discuss many topics regarding their social/emotional needs, career goals as well as academic success. Some topics that we may discuss include: friendship issues, stress, time management, goal-setting, academic planning, bullying, family changes, social skills, organization, career exploration and development of problem solving skills.

  • Small Group Counseling: A process where students sharing similar issues or concerns work together in a small group environment consisting of about 3-6 peers. The group sessions usually last about 30 minutes and are held for approximately 6-8 weeks.

  • Classroom counseling lessons: I develop and implement preK-5 classroom curriculum driven by national and county school counseling outcomes. Classroom lessons are regularly scheduled and address social/emotional, academic, and career-related needs at the child's developmental level.

  • Academic Interventions: I provide many academic interventions to enhance student success. I work with teachers to provide supplementary interventions unique to each student's specific needs, in order to ensure that every student will excel to their highest academic potential.
