I am very pleased to be your School Counselor for Grades PreK-2 at Fairview Elementary School. I enjoy working with the students, teachers, and parents of Fairview to help make this school the wonderful place to learn that it is. Originally from Chicago, IL, I began my career in education in 2002 as an ELA Middle School Teacher in Decatur, GA and I have been a School Counselor since 2007. I have been a School Counselor at Fairview since 2011. I love being a school counselor because it allows me to work with many children and their families on important skills. I truly believe it is vital for the adults of the future to learn how to communicate and get along with each other and to solve difficult problems without violence. As I work with our students, I hope to change the future positively.

Hello! I am originally from Mississippi where I completed my undergraduate studies at Mississippi State University and my graduate studies at the University of West Alabama. I worked in the social services field 5 years before beginning my career in education in 2011. I look forward to working with students in Grades 3-5. I cannot wait to meet you this school year!
We organize and support several events throughout the school year such as Red Ribbon Week, College Week, Career Fair, Career Cluster Lessons, Classroom Counseling (Core Curriculum Lessons), Student of the Month, and several others.
Students can be referred to speak with a counselor by a parent or teacher depending on availability. Students who have personal issues can also request a session. Student Referrals are available outside our offices and on the webpage. Parents and/or Guardians can call (770-474-8265) or e-mail to discuss any issue.
