The opportunity

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the essential role of social and emotional learning and mental health into focus and has drawn attention to the need to take a more holistic approach to students’ learning and development. 

Gordon is seeking a highly skilled mental health practitioner to join a diverse and collaborative team of professionals to support the social and emotional wellbeing of our students and families from nursery to eighth grade. 

Gordon’s school counselor will play a central role in attending to the mental health needs of children by working collaboratively with students’ families and divisional student support teams to advocate for students’ mental health and educational needs. The school counselor will provide a safe, accepting, non-judgmental space for students to discuss personal and academic issues, support student and family access to treatment, work across the school community to foster a culture of wellness, and help to maintain an emotionally healthy, productive and safe school environment.

The school counselor is a member of the Gordon faculty and reports to the Assistant Head of School for Teaching and Learning. The person in this role would work closely with the division directors, the consulting psychologist, the Health and Wellness Director, learning specialists, teachers, deans, classroom teachers, as well as Gordon’s therapy dog.
