    Hello, and Welcome to Camden Elementary School!

    It is an honor and pleasure to serve as the School Counselor where we teach “Excellence without Excuses.”  My mission as the School Counselor is to support all students, parents, faculty/staff, and community leaders in providing our students at Camden Elementary School with a compassionate and comprehensive learning environment through social emotional, academic, and career learning in order to prepare them with the knowledge of building a good self-concept in choosing to make good choices and establishing good study/work habits to become productive citizens of our global world. My school counseling program will provide individual, small group, and classroom guidance. Individual and small group counseling will focus on meeting the needs of the students. Classroom guidance lessons will focus on Social Emotional Learning, the Chick-fil-A Core Essential Character Values and Pro-social Skills. As a school, our goal is to focus on attendance, achievement (growth), and behavior which through my school counseling program is reflected by The Big 3 and Me: Treat Others Right, Make Smart Decisions, and Maximize Your Potential. 

    As parents, you are the most important people in your child’s life; therefore, we need to work together for the benefit of your child.  Your support is very much needed in helping your child to be a successful student who is Respectful, Responsible, and Safe.  The belief that every individual child is special and capable of learning lies at the heart of the school counseling program at CES.  Success in your child’s education is a team effort, and together we can make a difference.  As parents, you and/or teachers may refer your child to me throughout the school year.  

    I am looking forward to another great year at CES!
