INEL TRIBUNE Education Wednesday, March 31 2004 Page 5 ld Choices are nearing an end. Both sections for have a few lessons left. I have to admit, in my first ing this course, I have gained a vast amount of I just hope the students have as well. is something you will find at any school and prac- n/grade level. This school is no exception. Last thaci anincident with some 7th grade boys that got Intl. Although the school and I were already work- 10one 7th grade boys to stop bullying, it had reached Uhich had required a group discussion with the 7th . This meeting gave the students a chance to r Opinions on their situations. Fortunately, these ere very mature about what was going on and , ed their thoughts and feelings. As a group, we a SOme options on how to avoid any kind of bully- D future. Since then, students have informed me . have been better, but this is still an issue that I g With the students about. To all the students that a change in the right direction, thank you very ,q Please keep it up. Please remember, witnessing bullying and not saying anything to stop it makes the bullying. agOod deal of my energy and time has been spent Ks suffering from depression. Depression is very X people of all ages. For teenagers alone, exists in over 3.5 million Americans. In the harger Notes, I will make more comments about and Seasonal Affective Disorder. In that paper, ::lude some warning signs of depression as well '.olfirnple steps to follow when confronting the issue n. I1ree quarters completed in my first year of school 9' I realize I have learned, seen, and heard many une of these things that I have learned is that not t knows exactly what a school counselor is or does. ,"hool counselors are not therapists. For exam- unselors do not only meet with individuals that ,_ s. Sometimes I meet with students just to see s are going. Also, when I ask a student in the hall- ings are going, I am not analyzing the person, lust simply curious how things are going. I will about the students here and want to know what lg in your lives, but I will never analyze you, judge r to make you uncomfortable. It saddens me and me knowing that a few students feel like I ,1 do not know all of life's answers, nor do I try Since I do not know all of life's answers, I do 161ve everyone's problems. That is not what a dOes. A counselor is there for people to talk to. they can vent to and release some of. their feelings to. The counselor's goal is not to give ther to guido the student in exploring all of their helping them make the right decisions. Bottom rs are just like every day people. 1 truly wish Ikainly in the middle school, could get past the Ched with counselors. I believe it would allow ie school students to-open up and take advan- Opportunity to express some of their thoughts Without the fear of judgment. I want to be there le Student, and listen with an open mind to what- LWt to talk about. What i don't want is for stu- i,,,,eel like counseling is a form of punishment or that do is analyze people. Unfortunately though, feel like it is. I hope we all, including students, /self try to eliminate this stigma of counseling. 00nior Profiles III aarles deAvila and seburger tar Wars, Smoky and htr Ything but classical Speed Racer nar Series l class: Metals : 97 Cavileir : luilding model planes eat out: Hardies end a Sunday afternoon: Out with friends Would like to visit: Ireland  greatest challenge facing young adults "aoking Ier pressure attend one special event this year it would Vette races in Windom .l Want to race -s: Air Force oil are interested in pursuing and why: You have for yourself by the year 2015: s license hooaCtivities: Theater I activities: Church youth group and (eoo) tW, ntw00th Jordan Dale Dibble Parents: Donn and Ruth Ann Dibble Favorite Food: Steak and potatoes Movie: Joe Dirt Music: "American Soldier" by Toby Keith TV Show: Whose Line is it Anyways?
