 "As your new school counselor at Hatton,

I hope to get to know each of your children through

our comprehensive guidance program. School Counseling

promotes the academic, social, personal,

and career interests of your children

through lessons that correlate to the ASCA

(American School Counseling Association) guidelines.

Promoting character, helping students overcome

any hindrance to their learning, and

helping them to have FUN while learning,

while getting along with others, and becoming the very best

that they can be to be a productive member of society

 are all included in our goals here at Hatton Elementary.

I am so happy to be a part of the professional team of dedicated

educators here in Colbert County and look forward

to a fantastic year! Please do not hesitate to contact me,

if I can be of service to you!"
