Welcome Hornets Family!
Hello, HES Hornets, my name is Charae Spears and I am joining the HES Family for the 2020-2021 school year. I am a new school counselor who spent most of my adult years working in Corporate America. After leaving Corporate America I decided that public service was where I felt most fulfilled. I begin working for the Department of Family and Children Services and also the Department of Juvenile Justice for some time. However, I had a passion for advocating for children that I wanted to fulfill by becoming a school counselor. I am a mother of two daughters, Brooklyn and Karington. They have helped me understand the role of a parent in education, and have also prepared me for my role as the school counselor at Hampton Elementary School.
As the HES school counselor, I work with all students to ensure career, academic, and social/emotional development. To achieve this, I will collaborate with administrators, teachers, parents and students. Through these collaborations, I will be able to effectively provide services to all students to include classroom core curriculum lessons, individual counseling, small group, crisis intervention, and consultation for parents and teachers.
Here at Hampton Elementary School, we believe in "Putting The Child First", and I will do my best to ensure that goes forth through our Comprehensive School Counseling Program.
I am so excited about joining the HES family and know this will be a successful school year. Parents and students, please allow me to be of service to you by taking the opportunity to reach out to me whenever I can be of assistance. Thank you in advance for trusting me with the well-being of your children, and I look forward to working with everyone throughout the 20-21 school year.
