As your school counselor here at Bessemer Elementary, it is a privilege to share information that will assist our students with the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed to build a foundation for future success. The goal is to partner with staff and families, to remove barriers, and identify interventions for students’ academics and personal/social needs to promote educational achievement.
