Hello, and welcome to Garrison Pilcher's Counselor's Corner!  I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your child this school year, and I look forward to assisting you in any way I can.  

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.

Additional Information

Counseling Services

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

I am currently running my first round of small groups.  I will begin a second round after the winter holidays.  The students in these groups are typically referred by their teachers, but if you are interested in recommending your child for a small group, please feel free to contact me.

Guidance Curriculum

Each month 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 Garrison-Pilcher!  The following is my schedule for classroom lessons this school year:
