Mrs. Cox's Counseling Corner

    Welcome! My name is Stephanie Cox and I am the School Counselor. I am very excited about working with you and your child this year. This will be my thirteenth year with Currituck County Schools. Before becoming a counselor, I worked as a classroom teacher. I received my undergraduate degree in Sociology from James MadisonUniversity. I graduated from Old Dominion University with a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. I earned my Master's degree in School Counseling from the University of West Alabama.

    I will be visiting the classrooms to work with the students throughout the year. We will be learning about topics such as leadership habits, character traits, drug awareness/prevention, feelings, families, getting along with others and career education. This will be done through relevant, engaging, hands-on activities.

    There are a variety of programs available to our students. Some programs include:

    • Character Education
    • Red Ribbon Week
    • Newcomer's Club

    A variety of services are provided as well. They are as follows:

    • Individual Counseling
    • Small Group Counseling
    • Classroom Guidance Lessons
    • Liaison to Community Resources
    • Conferencing with Parents and Teachers for School Related Issues
    • ADD/ADHD Screenings

    Your child's social, emotional and academic development is important. It impacts all areas of his or her life. We want your child to have a positive, safe and successful school year. I am here to assist you and your family if you have any questions or concerns. You can contact me by calling the school, through email or by sending a note to school. I look forward to working with you and your child! Best wishes for a wonderful school year!

    Character Education

    We believe in incorporating character education on a daily basis. A character trait has been assigned to each month. The students learn about them through our morning announcements, classroom guidance lessons and teacher reinforcement. At the end of the month, the teacher selects a student from the classroom that has most strongly exhibited that habit and then he or she is recognized as the Student of the Month for that class. These students will have their picture displayed in the hallway, be recognized in an assembly and will receive a certificate. Please support our efforts and encourage your child to incorporate these traits at school, home and in the community!
