The mission of the School Counseling Program at Barack H. Obama Elementary Magnet School of Technology is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program that addresses the academic, career and social/emotional development of all students, preparing them to become positive, productive citizens and lifelong learners.


To inspire students to achieve their maximum potential by implementing a comprehensive program that addresses academic, career and social/emotional goals. School Counselors believe that every student can succeed through the collaborative efforts of all stakeholders.

Welcome, staff, scholars and parents!                                                                                                                                             

I am Dr. Shainita D. Carter and I will serve as your child’s school counselor. As the school counselor, I will provide services for your growing students in the areas of personal-social, academic, and career development. The American School Counseling Association has developed a national school counseling model in which Obama’s School Counseling Program will follow this school year. In order to provide the best customer service available, we would like to take the time to gather important information about what types of programs offered at Obama. I will provide both small group and large group guidance that is needed to support the academic achievement of our students. The school counseling program will aim to engage, encourage, and educate our students to reach for excellence.
