My name is Mrs. Tai Mays. I was a teacher for 11 years before becoming a school counselor. I am the School Counselor here at the Dynamic David Daniels! I am looking forward to a great school year! I will work in partnership with students, teachers, parents, and the community to help your child have a successful and positive school experience. I will be working as part of your child's team. As the counselor I understand that each child is different. Some students just need someone to listen to their concerns, whereas others may need help in developing problem solving and decision-making skills. Whatever the concern, I am here to listen to your child and to help all students feel safe and comfortable throughout the school day.
At times parents may need support and guidance as well. School counselors are also trained to work with parents and can be seen as a great resource to the parents and school staff. The mission of the Daniels Elementary Academy Counseling Office is to promote student success by providing academic, career, personal, and social counseling.
Expect The Best!
