Mrs. Julia Burrows

Welcome to the Burke Elementary Guidance Information page! I am very glad that you stopped by to learn more about me and the Guidance Program at Compass. First, I would like to tell you a little about myself. This is my third year at Compass Elementary as well as at Hickman Mills School District. Formerly, I was a school counselor with the Fort Osage School District for 5 years. I loved my job there, but I needed a change, and Compass was just what I was looking for! Prior to that, I worked for Liberty School District in their alternative education program. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from MIZZOU and my Master's Degree in Counseling from UMKC. I am an avid Tiger fan-MIZZOU that is! I am married to my high school sweetheart and have a seven year old daugther. Also, included in the family are two cats and two dogs. We love to watch football-MIZZOU and CHIEFS and spend time with family and friends around great food. 

Well, that's enough about me-let's talk about the Guidance Program at Compass. I spend one hour per month in each classroom doing classroom lessons that range from careers to feelings to life skills. I teach this by using a variety of teaching tools from various technology to books to art. I also spend time with students on an individual basis as needed or in groups. Group counseling services will be starting this fall and again in the spring. Information will be coming home at those times.

Some of the other programs that I facilitate are Back Snack from Harvesters and Collegiate Partners. Information about those programs will be coming home in the near future.

Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail with any questions or concerns.
