Rachel Crosby, School Counselor

    Welcome Back West Elementary!
    It is my hope that this schoolyear will be full of successful experiences for all students;
    that all students will show passion and perseverance toward growing their skills and knowledge.
    GRIT is the highest predictor of an individual achieving greatness.
    There is no way around it, working hard is necessary to achieve your short- and long-term goals.
    The good news is our thoughts and beliefs, our MINDSET, can be changed.
    In group or individual counseling, we will continue learning about THE 7 HABITS OF HAPPY KIDS designed by Steven Covey.
    We will focus on GROWTH MINDSET as well as coping skills and social skills. 
    Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns about your child.
    Email is the best way to reach me: rachel.crosby@gulfportschools.org
    You can also call and leave a message: 870-1025.
    Best wishes,
    Mrs. R. Crosby
