Meet The School Counselors





Mrs. Kemp and Ms. KarbelingMrs. Kemp and Ms. Karbeling

As the School Counselors we will promote , emotional, social, and career growth for each student. We will build a rapport with the students, teachers, families, and community members to better Garrett Park Elementary School as a whole. We will work with each student to help him or her achieve academic success and personal growth. We will work with students' families and the community to ensure learning goes beyond the school walls. We will encourage students to become life-long learners who are successful in all areas of development. Through the school counseling program, students will achieve a positive, healthy outlook towards themselves and others as they move through their developmental stages.

The school counseling program will enable all students to experience educational success by providing guidance in the areas of academic, career, and social/emotional development.

We will provide counseling to help students overcome challenges that interfere with learning and advocate for an environment that supports high achievement for all students.
