Hello! I am Mrs. Carten, a first year school counselor at Stockbridge Elementary. I am very excited and honored to be your School Counselor! This is my 4th year in Henry County School District and my 10th year in education. For the past two years, I served as an EIP teacher, Math Department Chair, and MTSS Chair in Henry County Schools. 

I chose School Counseling because I want the opportunity to work with children and their families on important skills. My philosophy of school counseling is that I truly believe all students can be successful, with given support, through counseling programs that provide education, prevention, and intervention activities. As a school counselor, giving students the opportunity to explore, develop, and nurture will show a positive effect in their life and society. It is my goal to help students grow academically, emotionally, and socially, in and outside of school through core curriculum lessons, small group, and individual counseling sessions.

I look forward to working with students, parents, faculty, and staff at Stockbridge Elementary to help the growth of our future leaders. Working with children is an absolute passion of mine. I enjoy building positive relationships, improving communication skills, problem solving skills, and so much more. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by email at or 770-474-8743.
