    Hi!  I'm Tracy Schledorn, Highland Elementary's school counselor.  I collaborate with our staff in serving the academic, social/personal, and career needs of our 740+ kindergarten through fifth graders through individual student planning, classroom lessons, prevention programs, small groups, and character education.  I am also on the School Improvement & Leadership Team, Multi-tiered System of Support Team, Student Support Services Team, and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support Team.  I am the 504 Committee Chair, the Student Council Co-advisor, and Hawk of the Month Coordinator.  I'm active on Highland's Beautification Committee and on ABSS's advocacy association.  It is an honor to work for our students!

    Contact me:
    I will be happy to schedule an appointment to meet with you or to discuss any questions/concerns over the phone.  My email is Tracy_Schledorn@abss.k12.nc.us and the front office is (336) 538-8700. 

    My history:
    Although I am not an Alamance County native, I’ve been in the area for over two decades.  I earned my bachelor's degree in science education at Elon College (it wasn't yet "University" when I graduated) and taught for six years at Williams High School. I earned my MS/EdS in school counseling from UNCG and worked for eight years as one of the school counselors at Southern Alamance Middle School.  I became Highland's School Counselor in 2017.  

    If there is any way I can be of assistance, let me know. I look forward to working with your student!

    Tracy Schledorn

    P.S. -- I’ve learned that most have an easier time pronouncing my last name if divided into syllables: “schle-” (schlay) and “dorn.”
