“We are so thrilled to have had our three dedicated and outstanding counseling interns at Sierra Vista this summer,” said Carolyn Hoffman, principal at Sierra Vista Junior High. “Not only have they had the opportunity to expand their knowledge, but they have been an asset to our program by providing our students with relevant and meaningful lessons and skills that will ensure they continue to more successful in their futures.”

The summer school program at Sierra Vista includes English and Math intervention for seventh grade students.

Three counseling interns developed this program based off the The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens book by Sean Covey, said Matt Hinze, an administrative intern at Sierra Vista Junior High and English teacher at Saugus High School. The counseling interns have completed teaching four of the seven habits during the five-week summer school session.

“The counselors are working in the classrooms, doing some skill building and life building,” Hinze said. “It’s a unique thing the counseling interns built on their own. They determined the most critical habits to teach for this population to be successful.”

The presentations usually last about an hour every day, Monday through Thursday.

“We started this at our school, and (the interns) went back to class and built it into the program at their own school,” Hinze said. “We’re not dictated by deadlines and can be more inventive and creative with learning experiences.”

More than 200 students attend the Sierra Vista Junior High summer school session, ending on Aug.1.

“It’s a smaller program for students struggling in math and english,” Hinze said. “It gives them a chance to recoup some credits and gain some value intervention skills to help them be successful in their eighth grade year.”
