Summary

My name is Emily Brown. In May 2009, I received my master’s degree in school counseling from Purdue University. As part of my program, I completed my internship at Roosevelt Middle School in Monticello, Indiana.  As a student, I was also employed by the university as a counseling group facilitator. After graduating, I was employed for 2 years as a school counselor at Lafayette Sunnyside Middle School in Lafayette, Indiana.

I have a rich history of experiences in education. As an undergraduate student, I completed a semester of student teaching in a special needs classroom at Burnett Creek Elementary. During my time there, I assisted students with a broad range of disabilities. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I went on to work for Wabash Valley Hospital as a school-based case manager. As a case manager, I was trained to keep carefully documented records, work collaboratively with schools, families, and other agencies, administer assessment tools, develop treatment plans, and implement interventions and strategies for my clients in order to improve their overall functioning. While in the school counseling program, I received experience as a counselor at all three levels of K-12. As a school counseling student, I had the opportunity to participate in the On Track program as a group facilitator, which allowed me to gain confidence in my abilities as well as exposed me to a variety of school cultures. Before graduating, I was inducted into Chi Sigma Iota Professional School Counseling Honor Society. Through this organization, I cultivated leadership experience as Membership Chair and Initiation Chair. In August '09 I began employment through Lafayette School Corporation as a counselor at Sunnyside Middle School, where I worked for 2 years with 5th/6th grade students. As a school counselor I collaborated with students, parents, and other faculty members. I was involved in implementing several programs including Team LEAD, which targets bully prevention. I also served as my site's Acuity test coordinator.
