Counselor's Corner



My name is Erin Goddard and I am the Elementary School Counselor at Paint Valley Local Schools. I am excited for the 2023-2024 school year. I want to welcome you to the new school year and share a little about what I will be doing at school.  As your student's school counselor I will be talking to students about careers, good manners, leadership, helping others, community, empathy, kindness, healthy relationships and how to be a good friend. Students will also learn how to handle emotions  ( Ex. anger, excitement, fear, joy, and sadness) and what strategies to use to help them through strong emotions. I will also provide short term individual counseling as needed and some small group counseling. As the counselor I will also help students, staff, and the community in times of crisis or as needed. I am looking forward to working with students and staff here at Paint Valley Elementary.
