Alabama Class A Counseling Certification Nationally Certified Counselor
It is my pleasure to be the counselor of Tuggle Elementary School! I am a graduate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling with a concentration of School Counseling, and I am a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have worked in the Birmingham City School system since January of 2015. I have lived in Birmingham all of my life--I am beyond thrilled to be able to work with the children of this community!
I service the children of Tuggle in multiple ways: classroom guidance, small group counseling, and individual counseling. I am also part of the Beta Club, Gardening Club, honors and awards and a coach for Girls on the Run. I am the 504 Coordinator and Testing Administrator for Tuggle as well.
I am always happy to talk with parents about acedmic concerns, behavior issues at school and home, emotional concerns such as loss of a loved one, anger, sadness, low self-esteem, etc. and consult about mental health conerns. I also have a variety of contacts and can help with resources like school uniforms, backpacks, and school supplies.
Please contact me if I can ever be of service to you or your child!
