Mrs. Kathleen Pechmann
I am delighted to be the school counselor at Commons Lane this year. I have been an educator for 31 years. I was a special educator at the beginning of my career. For the past 25 years, I have worked as a school counselor in the Ferguson Florissant School District. I love assisting students in learning the skills and attitudes necessary to be successful learners. I am so excited to be at a primary school because pre k - 2nd grade has always been my favorite age to work with and watch grow.
This year the guidance curriculum will work on the following skills: Bully Free and Sexual Harassment Free Environments, Healthy Relationships, Anger Management, Friendship Skills, and Career Awareness. Each month the students will participate in a 30-minute guidance lesson. Some students will join a weekly small group or have an individual session with myself or our district social worker. In-school therapy is also provided by CHADS Coalition for Mental Health, PINOCCHIO, and Great Circle. Further information about these programs is found on this web page.
Please contact me if you want information about our PROBE gifted program, special education referrals, or a 504. I want to provide all the services your child needs to be healthy and happy.
I look forward to working with you and your student(s) during the 2019-20 school year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
