"School Counselors are the first line of support for students. Students cannot achieve academically when they cannot cope with social and emotional problems. School Counselors can help guide students in their journey through childhood and adolescence."
Welcome Parents, Guardians, Students, and Friends!
Spring 2011 School Picture at Oakland Elementary School
My name is Ms. Sandra Sosa and this is my fifth year as a Professional School Counselor at Oakland Elementary School. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Child & Family Development and my Master of Education degree in Professional Counseling from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!). I then received my Specialist in Education degree in School Counseling from Georgia State University (Go Panthers!). Currently, I am enrolled in a Doctor of Education program in Professional Counseling & Supervision at the University of West Georgia (Go Wolves!).
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico before moving to the great peachy state of Georgia. I have an adorable Chihuahua by the name of Carlitos, also from Puerto Rico. I love to teach our students about Puerto Rico, its culture, and all it has to offer! Our newest addition, Ozzie the Aussie (Australian Shepherd), came into our lives the summer of 2011. Look how big he is already!
I believe every student is capable of reaching high expectations. So, have you set the bar high enough? My desire as your counselor is to work collaboratively with our community and families to ensure the success for all of our students.
If you have any questions regarding Oakland's Counseling Program please feel free to call me at (770) 954-1901 or send me an email at Sandra.Sosa@henry.k12.ga.us. Please keep in mind that I do teach classroom guidance lessons so I may not be available when you call. Simply leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I can't wait to meet our entire Oakland family!!!
