My name is Holli Sills, and I am so excited to be serving as the School Counselor of Jamestown Elementary School. As the School Counselor my mission is to provide a comprehensive, developmental Counseling program that promotes academic success, career development, and personal/social development that prepares all students to be well rounded, innovative, creative, and adaptive citizens who will contribute at the highest level as productive members of society.
Not only am I the School Counselor, I am also an advocate who collaborates with parents and/or legal guardians, other educators, and the community to provide support system for all students that helps them reach their full potential both academically and socially.
Confucius once said,” If your plan is for one year, plant rice; if your plan is for ten years plant trees; if your plan is for one hundred years educate children.” Children hold the future in their heads and hearts and it is our responsibility as educators to stimulate growth and ensure safety. I became an educator to “feed” the minds of children with knowledge and to fill their hearts with respect and equality. An ideal educator provides a safe place to share ideas and beliefs and listens with fairness and respect. As a guide through life’s lessons, good or bad, an outstanding educator capitalizes on all teaching moments, forever molding and shaping the citizens of tomorrow.
"Behind every successful person there is one elementary truth: somewhere, someone cared about their growth and development."
