Counselor's Corner

Last Updated: 8/17/2022 5:23 PM


Welcome to Hand in Hand's Counseling Corner!  My name is Dara Creech, and I serve as your child's school counselor. I have been an educator in the Thomas County School System since 2007, and an elementary school counselor since 2014.  

Counseling and guidance is an integral part of the total education program at Thomas County Elementary Schools. The counseling program supports the elementary school mission through services and activities designed to nurture the development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for lifelong learning and success.

The professional school counselors at Thomas County Elementary Schools strive to promote and enhance the learning process for all students. This mission is accomplished through implementation of school counseling programs developed based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model

Additional Information

Counseling Services

At Hand in Hand, the school counselor provides counseling services by working with students individually, in small groups, and during classroom guidance lessons. 

Guidance Curriculum

I visit classrooms and discuss a different topic based on the needs of the school.  I love visiting classrooms and working with all students at Hand in Hand!  The first classroom lesson this year will be a "Meet the Counselor" lesson to introduce myself and explain my role.


Office Hours

As you can imagine, every day in a primary school is an amazing adventure, and every day as the school counselor looks different based on the needs of our students.  Because I can't guarantee office hours, I am very diligent and efficient about returning emails and phone calls, so feel free to use the information listed to the left (underneath my picture) to reach out to me, and I will get back to you asap.
