Who is the Spring Hill Elementary Counselor?

What a privilege it is to join the staff, families, and students as a member of the SHES family this year! My name is Shelby Fleming and I am the school counselor at Spring Hill Elementary. I obtained my Masters of Arts in Counseling degree at MidAmerica Nazarene University. I worked with children in the mental health field for a few years before I decided to transition into school counseling. It is my goal to assist children and families as they overcome challenges and develop towards their full potential!

In my free time, I enjoy reading, painting, hiking, and spending time outside. I recently moved to the Spring Hill area from Fort Scott, KS. I cannot wait to get to know the Spring Hill community!

What does a school counselor do?

The school counseling program is designed to encourage student growth in social-emotional, academic, and career planning skills. School counselors provide services such as classroom lessons, small groups, and individual counseling sessions for students. Lessons and small groups may cover topics such as friendship skills, leadership, bully prevention, conflict resolution, study skills, goal setting, sadness, worrying, coping with grief, and anger management. Students can meet with the counselor by self-referral or by referral from parents or teachers.

The school counselor can also work together with a student's outpatient counselor if the student receives professional mental health services. If parents think their child needs to see a mental health professional, the school counselor can help connect families with appropriate counselors.

Please feel free to contact me if your student is experiencing any social, emotional, or behavioral concerns. Your child can also contact me by filling out a form, talking to their teacher, or coming to my office. I want to help every student have a successful and positive school year!
