Morning Presenter: Kathy L'Heureux

Kathy L'Heureux is the school counselor at Prescott Elementary, a large, urban Pk-Grade 5 school in Lincoln, Nebraska. During her 25 years as an educator, Kathy has also served school communities in Florida, Iowa, Colorado, and Wisconsin. 15 years ago, her passion for advocacy, empowerment and tiered supports for all students took her from the classroom to school counseling. In addition to collaborating with students, families, teachers, administrators and stakeholders, Kathy participates on the PBiS/MTSS team and district Crisis Response Team.  With her PhD coursework almost completed, she is writing her dissertation on ‘What are the benefits of creating a culture of wellness in your trauma-informed school?’ In her free time she loves spending time with her husband and 4 children.  

Presentation: Have you wondered how your role fits into a multi-tiered systems of supports? This presentation will give you a background of MTSS-B and how to support our kids in yellow when Tier 1 isn't enough. Our role as a school counselor has changed throughout the years as we have become a more vital role in Tier 2 Interventions. I hope to give you a glimpse of how Prescott Elementary School has been successful with implementing a tiered system, specifically the school counselor role in CICO, ideas to take back to your own team, and seeing your impact of building relationships through a chart.

Presentation: Fire Up So You Don’t Burnout: How to Prevent, Break Through, and Extinguish Burnout 
Burnout is like a wildfire—spreading quickly and affecting everything in its path. Monster.com recently reported that 95% of employees are thinking of leaving their job. The reason why? Burnout, and it’s not slowing down any time soon for counselors. With 79% of the workforce burned out and even more stressed out, it’s the perfect time to extinguish this epidemic. With having to juggle more things and in different ways, burnout and stress are at an all-time high in education, reducing performance, health, and morale. In this powerful presentation, Pam gets you fired up by sharing what leads to burnout, pinpointing your contributing factors to overwhelm, and showing you how to handle stress to improve focus, performance, and team dynamic.
Participants will:

  • Uncover the #1 factor leading to burnout and the three-pillar success formula to help amp up your team and yourself
  • Apply proven burnout strategies to battle the burnout beast and enhance time management, focus, and energy
  • Identify and pinpoint your biggest “burnout moments” to prevent future stress and overwhelm to improve your health, mind, and morale
