Making a Referral

  • School counselors have lots of resources and ideas to help students be successful in school.  I love to talk to parents!  You can email me at or call my office to schedule a meeting, 865-262-8072.  
    Many times, students refer themselves to me.  At the beginning of the year, all students learn the three ways they can get some time with Mrs. Choate:
    1. Write me a note and give it to me as they see me around Beaumont.
    2. Tell their teacher that they would like to talk with me.  Teachers are great at relaying these requests, especially if the student writes a note for me. 
    3. Tell their parent that they would like to talk with me.  Parents can complete an online Request for Student Counseling here:
    Other Student Support Staff:
    In addition to the School Counselor, there are also two Social Workers available to work with students. Social Workers are able to provide a variety of supports for students. These include counseling, family outreach, and referrals to community resources to help meet student needs. Our two Social Workers are Jennifer White-Vaught and Amie Leonard.
