  • School Counselor

    The mission of the Bargerton Elementary School Counseling Program is to decrease academic and non-academic barriers to student success, maximize every student’s social/emotional, educational, and career development potential, and to promote a culture of social responsibility and self-advocacy.


    Every adult action reinforces the belief that all of our students can succeed in a college or career of their choice and be productive citizens in their community.


    We believe:
    • All students can be successful.
    • All members of the Bargerton Elementary School community have the right to access services provided by the school counselor.
    • School counselors are an integral part of multiple, collaborative teams that are working to ensure student success.
    • The school counselor is a safe person with whom students can share concerns, accomplishments, and personal goals.
    • School counselors must actively identify and provide additional support for children with at-risk characteristics.
    We believe a comprehensive school counseling program should:
    • Reach all students.
    • Be an integral part of the total school program.
    • Equip students with the skills necessary for them to achieve their career goals.
    • Utilize a team approach to eliminate barriers in school achievement.
    • Conduct activities that contribute to the development of a positive school climate.
    • Recognize students’ individual abilities and assist them in maximizing their potentials.
    • Help students develop a healthy self-concept and an acceptance of individual differences.
    • Link programs with opportunities for students outside of the school.
    • Include the participation of teachers because of their direct involvement with students on a daily basis.
    • Foster a positive relationship between home and school.
    • Be designed and coordinated by the counselor(s) with input from all stakeholders.
    • Use data to drive the development and evaluation of the program.
    We believe all school counselors will:
    • Adhere to the professional and ethical standards of the Tennessee School Counselors Association and the American School Counselor Association.
    • Set goals based on ASCA competencies and school data, provide quality work, and monitor data to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.
    • Be held accountable for showing the impact they have on student achievement.
    • Strive for professional excellence through continued study and participation in professional organizations and workshops.

    Explanation of confidentiality as it pertains to communication with the school counselor is available in school counselor's office.
