I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself! My name is Amy Waddell and I am the School Counselor here at Benton Elementary. I am so honored to be part of the Benton community and to be given the opportunity to work with your children.
As a School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all students. I offer support to the BES students, staff, families, and community. I meet with students individually, in small groups, and I also conduct classroom counseling lessons for all students. I meet with parents, collaborate with teachers and staff, and consult with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all Benton Elementary students.
Our School Counseling program here at Benton Elementary is designed to reach and meet the needs of all students. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email me at any time.
