Welcome to School Counseling!
At Amherst Elementary School, the school counseling program is designed to support the development and well-being of our students. Our program focuses on social-emotional learning (SEL), academics, and college/careers to help our students reach their fullest potential. We deliver these services in a classroom setting, small groups, or individually. We are champions for children!
Amherst's will have two new school counselors for the 2021-2022 school year! Ms. Morgan is available for students Monday through Friday. She is a first-year school counselor and is excited to be at Amherst! Mrs. Holloway is new to Amherst this year but has been a School Counselor in Knox County for ten years! Mrs. Holloway is available for our students every Monday. She will be a great asset to our Shark family!
Our Services to Students
Classroom Guidance: Each class will see the school counselor for a special lesson on social/emotional needs, academics, or college/career needs in a classroom setting.
Individual Counseling: Students can recieve short-term counseling sessions to assist them with any issues that are prohibiting them from being successful in the classroom.
Small Groups: The School Counselors offer several different small groups throughout the year. These groups consist of 3-5 students who are all working toward a common goal.
