Hello! My name is Jeremy Lavender, and I am the school counselor at Riverview Elementary. I’m a graduate of Georgia Southern University with an undergraduate degree in English and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, and writing in my spare time.

At RvES we have developed a comprehensive counseling program that facilitates student success and supports the academic, emotional, and social needs of all students. This program provides students with opportunities to learn more about themselves and others through classroom guidance, small group counseling, and individual counseling. It also supports teachers and parents through parent/teacher meetings and Student Support Team meetings and provides resources and assistance.

During classroom guidance, students explore topics such as study skills, peer relationships, manners, self-concept, citizenship, personal safety, and career awareness. Small group guidance is intended for children who are experiencing similar problems such as family changes, death and dying, friendship issues, self-esteem issues, or preparation for middle school. In addition, students can meet with me individually to discuss personal issues that may be affecting them.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any personal, social, or academic concerns about your student at RvES.
