Hunters Bend Comprehensive School Counseling Program
My name is Lee Boone, and I am so delighted to be the school counselor here at Hunters Bend Elementary! My role is to support your child as we explore life skills impacting their academic, personal/social, and career related success. These skills will be the focus of Life Skill’s Classes, small groups, and individual counseling opportunities. My hope is for each child to believe in his or her own incredible capabilities and to have the courage and confidence to stretch and grow.In addition to classroom lessons, small group, and individual counseling, the comprehensive school counseling program includes consultation to assist school staff and parents. Other responsibilities include coordinating TCAP testing and assisting with parenting workshops and community resources.
The professional elementary school counselor holds a minimum of a master’s degree and required state certification in school counseling.
Maintaining certification includes on-going professional development to stay current with education reform and challenges facing today’s students. Professional association membership enhances the school counselor’s knowledge and effectiveness.
