My name is Cyntonia Carten, a first year counselor at Walnut Creek Elementary. I am very excited & honored to be here! This is my 4th year in Henry County Schools & my 11th year in education.

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 Walnut Creek 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.
I am married with 3 beautiful girls.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, watching sports, and playing basketball.
