Ms. Chrissy Wescott
Hi! Welcome to my webpage. My name is Chrissy Wescott and I have been the full-time school counselor at Sumner for the past 15 years. I graduated from Florida State University with a Master's degree in counseling and an Education Specialist degree. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of NC in addition to my NC School Counseling license. I obtained my National Board Certification in 2011 and I have over 25 years of experience working with children and adolescents.
I see all of Sumner's Kindergarten through 5th-grade students for SEL (Social Emotional Learning) classes on a rotation schedule. We do activities and have discussions about the importance of education, including obtaining a high school diploma and pursuing post-secondary education options. We explore different career options and discuss students' interests, values, and skills that affect career decision-making. Students review Guilford County Schools' character traits and talk about how to recognize and handle bullying behavior. My classes focus on obtaining the 21st-century skills needed to succeed in life and the workplace.
I also serve as IPS (Intensive Support) and 504 chair. Below are links with information about these services. Feel free to call or email me with any questions!
