School Counseling Program
Hello! My name is May Mitchell I am the school counselor at Northside Elementary. I am here to help students have a successful school year. As the school counselor, I work with teachers, support staff, parents/guardians, and members of the community. I am part of the team that works to create a positive learning environment for all students reflective of our school’s core values - Respectful, Responsible, and Safe.I am available by phone or email.
