Rosanne Sheritz Sartori is an elementary school counselor, who has spent so much time trying to gather materials to use for classroom guidance sessions. Eventually, she decided to create her own lessons by making up stories, songs, raps, rhymes, and games to teach topics that met the American School Counseling Standards. Sheritz Sartori’s students enjoyed and related to the characters in her stories because they faced the same challenges the students were facing and she found that when the characters in the stories learned how to solve their problems, her students learned right along with them.
