Counseling Newsletter

My name is Kelly Jean Tucker & I am serving as the interim counselor while Mr.Schweitzer is on leave. I am so excited to be here at Leicester Elementary & have felt so welcomed in my first week. I am finishing up my master's in school counseling through Appalachian State University so I will stay on as an intern once Eric returns.

Please feel free to contact me with any student concerns, would like to me teach a certain skill/character trait in your classroom, or with any other feedback/suggestions . You can can speak with me in person or email me at

Guidance Schedule

This week in guidance, 1st & 2nd grade will learn about and practice their listening skills. Fourth grade will learn about goal setting and identify one personal and academic goal for this school year. Click here for the link to the prezi I will be using in the goal setting lesson.

To help the students adjust to a new face, I would like to come to the classrooms to do guidance. Please feel free to let me know if you would prefer the students to come to my room or if you would like to make a change to the scheduled time.
