Hello Fairlawn Patriots and Families,
My name is Rachel Lowe, and I am very excited to be your school counselor this 2018-2019 school year! I wanted to take a moment to say hello and share a little about myself. I was born and raised here in Fort Pierce, so I’m very thankful to be back home after spending the last few years at the University of Florida. In 2015, I earned my B.S. in Public Relations with an outside concentration in leadership. I recently graduated in December 2017 with a Master of Education and Education Specialist degrees in school counseling. During my undergraduate and graduate careers, I found a passion for working with students. From the elementary to college levels, I enjoyed helping students in the academic, social and career domains.
I counsel from a Solutions Focused Therapy background, which long story short, means I help students create a plan to address and solve their problems. I will be certified as a school counselor through Florida’s Department of Education and am currently a member of the American School Counseling Association. I’ve been trained to provide individual, small and large group counseling in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development. For long-term counseling services, I can assist in coordinating with community referrals. My clinical experiences include working at a K-12 developmental research school, elementary school and with UF college students in the area of crisis response. I’m very happy to be back at the elementary level and working with your children.
Fairlawn holds a special place in my heart because it’s the place where I first started to develop a love of learning and helping others. My hope this school year is to provide a meaningful experience for your students and enrich their skills in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
