Hello and welcome from the school counselor’s office . I've been at North Buncombe Elementary since 2006. I received my Bachelor’s of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Asheville and my Masters in Education from Western Carolina University.

The counseling program at North Buncombe Elementary offers individual counseling, group counseling and classroom guidance lessons. Each classroom is visited  monthly for classroom guidance lessons. I am currently using the Second Step curriculum in classroom guidance. This curriculum uses social-emotional learning which focuses on emotion management, situational awareness and academic achievement.  The curriculum is evidence based and is shown to decrease problem behaviors and increase school success. Some of the topics covered in classroom guidance are:

  • decision making
  • diversity
  • conflict resolution
  • responsibility
  • friendship skills
  • bullying prevention
  • emotion management
  • career exploration

 Individual counseling is provided by student referral, teacher referral and parent referral. This is short term counseling to help with concerns or problems that are affecting the student’s academic success. Small group counseling is also offered when several students are experiencing a similar problem or life issue and need support. The school counselors also work with parents, school staff and community agencies to help meet the needs of students and families.

I also coordinate special programs at the school such as the Health Fair, Career Day and the Garden Club for 4th grade students. The counseling office is here to support every student at North Buncombe Elementary as each one strives to reach his or her fullest academic potential.

Please feel free to contact the Counseling Office at 645-6054 if you have any questions about the role of the school counselor or if you would like to set up an appointment to discuss your child.
