Iola Middle School
As a School Counselor, I work with students on an indivudual basis, in small groups, and sometimes in the classroom. The counseling program has 3 areas of focus: Academic, Career, and Personal/Social. Students may be referred to see me by teachers, administrators, other staff, or parents. If you wish for the school counselor to work with your student individually (or in a group) please contact me at 620-365-4795.
Worst Day Ever?
by Chanie Gorkin
Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don't try to convince me that
There's something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don't last.
And it's not true that
It's all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be attained
Only if one's surroundings are good
It's not true that good exists
I'm sure you can agree that
It's all beyond my control
And you'll never in a million years hear me say
Today was a very good day
Now read the poem from bottom to top. This is a great example of how our thoughts directly effect our attitude and feelings about things!
