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.
