Welcome to Clarion-Goldfield-Dows Elementary. I am Sarah Kakacek and the K-5 School Counselor at Clarion-Goldfield-Dows Elementary. I desire a love for learning and helping children. My job entails working with students, parents, and administration. Students will have opportunities for classroom guidance as well as individual and small group work.
I am excited about the Leader in Me initiative starting this school year. The Leader in Me initiative begins with a framework: ALL children have genius. As educators, it is our job to cultivate and ignite that love for learning in our students. The Leader in Me process and 7 Habits is a combination of personal and interpersonal effectiveness such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration, and creativity. The skills taught also include critical thinking, goal setting, listening, and self-directed learning.
