Trina Scott - Counselor
Welcome to Borah Elementary's counselor webpage! My name is Trina Scott and I have been an elementary counselor since 2008. I began my career in the Post Falls School District and feel lucky to be able to join this amazing Borah family in the fall of 2021. I am an Idaho native and love all of the outdoor opportunities this area has to offer and enjoy spending my free time exploring the great outdoors with my family.
As the counselor, it is my job to promote the educational success of students by enhancing their personal development. I wear a variety of hats in my role and believe being present and accessible to all students is crucial to my job. Your students will see me in their classrooms to deliver lessons every few weeks. In addition to classroom lessons, the counseling office also offers group and individual counseling. Counseling groups can vary per year depending on the needs of the students. Group topics can include: children of divorce/separation, anger management, friendships, social skills, grief/loss, kids living with grandparents, etc. Students may also wish just to come in and talk to me if they are having a bad day.
How can your child see the counselor? Students may sign up with their teacher to schedule an appointment, a teacher or other school staff may refer a student, or parents may request their child visit with the counselor. Our counseling program maintains an open-door policy for any concerns a parent may have about his/her child. We communicate with parents and staff about student behavioral and/or emotional progress while also protecting student/family confidentiality.
I look forward to creating many positive relationships with the students of Borah Elementary and their families! Please do not hesitate to call (208-664-5844) or e-mail (email@example.com) me if you feel I can help out in any way or if you have any questions or concerns.
