About Me

My name is Mrs. Wells and I am the school counselor at Colonial Beach High School. I graduated from Old Dominion University in 2008 with a bachelor's of science in human services/counseling. From there, I attended The College of William & Mary and earned my master's in education in school counseling PreK-12. Following graduation, I worked with at-risk youth through Henrico County's Mental Health and Developmental Services department in Henrico, VA. I am so excited for my fourth year here at Colonial Beach!


<Mission Statement>

"Student success: everyone plays a part; everyone has a role."


The Colonial Beach Middle/High School Counseling department will collaborate with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community in order to provide a comprehensive program. All students will have access to services that will assist them in working towards their potentials as lifelong learners with a commitment to their community, state, and nation. As an advocate, the school counselor will provide safe and supportive school counseling services directed at the needs of students in the following domains; academic, personal/social, and career planning.


<Philosophy>

All
people regardless of race, culture, religious affiliation, disability, etc. will be treated equally, respected, and valued as a integral part of our community.

All students will have access to all services provided by the school counseling department.

 
The school counselor will be an advocate for all students and will collaborate with parents, faculty, administration, staff, and the community.
 
The school counseling program will be aligned with the needs of the student population. These needs will be determined by consulting with the faculty, staff, administration, students, and parents of Colonial Beach Middle/High School and also by collecting data (surveys, evaluations, school reports).

The school counselor will abide by the American School Counselor Association's (ASCA) professional school counseling ethics, state and local laws, and district policies.
