Dallas Schools Make Counselors Available

Bill Zeeble

Dallas Independent School District social workers and counselors, like Jazmin Greenwood,  were ready at schools Monday for any students who were distressed or worried about Friday’s school shootings.

"Overall, it was a pretty steady, normal day. We did have one student early in the morning.  A parent came to talk to me and I did pull the student out and talk to him about how he was feeling. I didn’t’ see the feelings of worry  or anxiety.  Overall he was doing ok."

Greenwood is a counselor at Winnetka Elementary School. Other North Texas school districts also provided counselors and social workers to help students who were upset by last week’s school violence.
