The Thomas B. Conley Elementary School Counselor is committed to engaging and supporting all students in learning. This is exemplified daily by the counselor efforts to create learning environments that promote student autonomy, interaction, competence and choice. The role of an elementary counselor consists of many different daily activities. Our school counselor, Mrs. Rutledge works closely with parents, teachers, school administrators and other professionals to provide students with the best possible resources and services. The counselor counsels, and is a helper, a listener, and a friend. Mrs. Rutledge identifies herself with the students as their "helping friend."
