My name is Mike Echols, and I am the school counselor or "Student Assistance Specialist" here at Columbia Valley. I received my Master's degree in social work in 1981 from Portland State, and have been working professionally with children and families since that time. I will be presenting information regarding social skills building, bullying prevention and conflict resolution in all classes this year. I will also host a number of small groups helping students to deal with issues relating to friendship skills, family change and anger management. Additionally, I oftentimes am able to have lunch with groups of students on a regular basis to "check in" and see how things are going. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, either by calling me at my direct number (604-1001, ext. 6038), or by sending me an e mail. I look forward to working with you and your student here this year!
