Position title
School Counselor
Description

PT/ FT:  Full Time

School: Overbrook School

Level:     Preschool – 6th Grade

Introduction:

The Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation (also known as the “Nashville Dominicans”) own and operate two private Catholic schools on the Dominican Campus in Nashville – Overbrook School and St. Cecilia Academy. As the schools move to implement a new strategic plan, next year Overbrook will become Nashville’s only Catholic PreK-sixth co-ed elementary school, and St. Cecilia its only 7-12 Catholic all-girls school. St. Cecilia was founded in 1860 and Overbrook in 1936, but both share the same Dominican difference: an academically rigorous approach to educating students in truth and charity within a nurturing community marked by grace, friendship, freedom, and confidence.

Responsibilities:

Support students through individual or small group counseling, oversee SEL program, serve as a lead member of the school Action Plan committee, communicate with teachers, parents and providers for the benefit of the students and assist in educating faculty and parents on relevant topics.

Qualifications:

Master’s Degree in Counseling or Social Work with three years of counseling experience with children is preferred. Belief in the dignity of each person as created in the image of God is the foundation of the school counselor’s relationship with students, faculty and parents. The ideal candidate should be an empathetic person with a passion for serving elementary-aged students and their families.  The candidate should have excellent communication skills, have a trustworthy nature, and be able to demonstrate flexibility to respond as situations arise.

Overbrook School:

Learning engages the whole child to grow spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally by utilizing the Beyond the Brook farm for outdoor exploration and STEM learning. Overbrook is known for fostering love of God and neighbor, academic excellence, the formation of children in freedom and virtue, creativity, and the development of servant leadership within each student
