Welcome to Hamblen Elementary!!!

 

Hello, my name is Valarie Baker and I am the counselor here at Hamblen Elementary. My goal is to  provide a comprehensive school counseling program that fosters continual growth and resilience by equipping students with academic, social-emotional, and college & career skills; promoting responsible citizens who prosper in a global society.   As a Professional School Counselors, I work with students on an individual basis, in small groups and in the classrooms.  Please feel free to contact me with your questions or concerns.  Looking forward to a great school  year. 

 

Here are some reasons students might want to talk to the School Counselor:

  • "I had an argument with my best friend and she doesn't want to be my friend anymore."
  • "Some kids in my science class are talking about fighting after school."
  • "My parents argue all the time and I don't know what to do."
  • "My grandfather is really sick and I'm scared he's going to die."
  • "My mom just had a baby and she doesn't have time for me anymore."
  • "We're moving again!"
  • "My dad wants me to be an engineer like him, but I want to be a pilot."

Here are some reasons parents might want to talk to the School Counselor:

  • "This is John's third school this year, and he's having difficulty adjusting."
  • "My husband is being deployed in two weeks and Carolyn may need some help coping with this change."
  • "Sam used to be excited about school, but lately he doesn't seem to care."
  • "My wife and I recently separated and our daughter could use some help understanding this."
  • "My son seems to be the target of some teasing and bullying after school.  Can you help?"
