Janelle Mather

Compass School
Counselor

I am excited to begin my 23rd year as a Pirate for the Platte County R-3 School District. I have been a school counselor for fifteen years and was a reading teacher for eight years. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Middle School, with certification in Reading for K-12 from Missouri Western State University. I have a Masters Degree in School Counseling and Guidance from Northwest Missouri State University. As a volunteer, I have enjoyed being a part of the Pirates Rock Committee since 2003. I enjoy recognizing students who display our monthly character traits.

I teach guidance lessons about academic strategies, body image, bullying interventions, conflict resolution, death/grief, empathy, feelings, friendship skills, healthy choices, nutrition, peer pressure and safety with every

K-5 student at Compass Elementary. I incorporate our monthly character traits into our guidance lessons.

Guidance Schedule varies each week. Please feel free to reach me by email if you have any questions or concerns.
