Welcome, I am Smith Elementary's new School Counselor!! I am so excited to join Smith and have heard so many wonderful things about the school, the students, and the staff! I am moving in to my 12 year as a School Counselor. I received my Undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill (GO TARHEES!!) and my Masters at East Carolina University. I am married to Todd Anthony and have 2 awesome boys, Tyler (10) and Garrett (8). We also have a very sweet yellow lab, Kayla and a lab/shepherd mix, Macy.
As the School Counselor at Smith Elementary my goal is to promote and enhance students' learning by developing their academic, career and personal/social aspirations through a comprehensive school guidance program. Several ways I meet the needs of each student is through classroom guidance lessons, small groups and individual counseling. I meet with groups and individuals through teacher and parent referrals.
Please feel free to contact me throughout the school year with any questions or concerns or if you would like me to meet with your child. I am also available to meet with you, as parents, at any time!
I look forward to working with you and your children this school year!!
