Dear Ridgway Families,   


I am excitd to return in person to Ridgway Schools this Fall.  It is so wonderful to work with students in person again.  As the school counselor, I'm here to support the social emotional needs of all students at Ridgway Schools. 

  • At RES, I will be teaching weekly social emotional lessons using the Second Step curriculum along with Mindfulness Curriciulum from Mindful Schools.  
  • At RSS, I will be teaching social emotional lessons twice a month to support our monthly advisory themes.  I will aslo be using curriculum from Overcoming Obsticles, Mindful Schools, and other resources.

I am also available for school counseling, supporting academic and social emotional needs, by appointment to meet with individual students as needed.

Please find on my website various resources for coping, during this current school closure and anytime. See resources for tools to assist with social and emotional learning, as well as national and local contacts for mental wellness. 

If you need help outside of school hours, please contact the Center of Mental Health Crisis Walk-In Center 24/7 at 970-252-6220 or visit their walk in clinic at 300 N. Cascade Ave, Montrose.  Always call 911 if the situation is an emergency.



Wishing you and your family good health,

Sharon Brown


Mental Health School Counselor
