• Welcome to Hardin Valley Elementary's School Counseling page!

    My name is Hannah Kincaid, and I am the full-time school counselor here at Hardin Valley Elementary School this year. The 2017-2018 school year is my first year at HVES as the school counselor, and I am so excited to be a Hardin Valley Hawk!

    We also have the privilege of having another counselor joining HVES this year, Vicki Hill. She will be here every Thursday. She is also the school counselor at Blue Grass Elementary and spends the remaining four days of the week there.

    Through the comprehensive developmental school counseling program, Mrs. Hill and I aim to maximize academic growth, social/emotional development, and career awareness for the students at HVES. We will do this through individual counseling, small groups, and classroom guidance.

Why Elementary School Counselors? The elementary years are a time when students begin to develop their academic self-concept and their feelings of competence and confidence as learners. They are beginning to develop decision-making, communication and life skills, as well as character values. It is also a time when students develop and acquire attitudes toward school, self, peers, social groups and family. Comprehensive developmental school counseling programs provide education, prevention and intervention services, which are integrated into all aspects of children’s lives. Early identification and intervention of children’s academic and social/emotional needs is essential in removing barriers to learning and in promoting academic achievement. The knowledge, attitudes and skills students acquire in the areas of academic, career and social development during these elementary years serve as the foundation for future success.
