Weimar High School Counseling Center 

Lindsay Fisbeck          lfisbeck@weimarisd.org

The goal of the Weimar High School Counselor is to prepare all students socially, academically, and emotionally for present and future challenges. Students have the opportunity to participate in educational and career exploration, and to pursue career planning opportunities in a safe, nurturing, and encouraging environment. As the counselor, I will work in a collaborative partnership with students, parents, teachers, and community members to empower students to reach their highest potential. 
My door is always open.

How a School Counselor Can Help:
Your school counselors are here to help! We support students as they work towards personal growth, acquiring positive social skills, and setting informed goals in order to achieve their full academic and career potential. Counselors collaborate with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and members of the community.

    • Organizational, study and test-taking skills
    • Education in understanding self and others

    • Communication, problem-solving, decision-making and conflict resolution
    • Career awareness, exploration and planning
    • Substance abuse education
    • Multicultural/diversity awareness
  • Individual Student Planning
    • Goal-setting/decision- making
    • Academic planning
    • Career planning
    • Education in understanding of self, including strengths and weaknesses
    • Transition planning
  • Responsive Services
    • Individual and small group counseling
