About the Counselor
I am excited to join the staff at Norris Elementary and look forward to meeting students and their families and other community members. I am from a neighboring county, Lincoln, where I grew up with my parents, three sisters and six brothers. I have two sons, one who resides in Atlanta, GA and the youngest is a senior in high school.
As school counselor, my primary goal is to be an advocate for students by building positive rapport with them. First and foremost, I will work diligently with school staff to ensure that students feel cared for and safe at school. I will support the social /emotional needs of students, academic and career interest. Under normal circumstances I would visit the classrooms, meet with students in small groups and see them individually. However, procedures may be different due to the pandemic. In spite of the uncertainty, we are a team and we will get through this together.
