So glad you have stopped by my page!

My name is Becca Zimmerman. I am the School Social Worker/ Counselor at Ray Childers Elementary. I am a trained mental health professional who is often seen as the link between home and school. I provide services that address the child's social and emotional regulation as it relates to their social and academic functioning. During a typical school day, I provide individual counseling, group counseling as well as provide character education lessons for the entire school. I also link students and families to outside resources and agencies in the community. 

  I am available to meet with students and parents on an as needed basis. 
Please do not hesitate to contact me at 828-324-1340 or by email at beccazimmerman@burke.k12.nc.us .

The mission of Ray Childers is to provide a safe environment 
where students can become critical thinkers and life-long learners with self-confidence and the ability to work cooperatively towards a productive life. 

My goal at Ray Childers is to complete this mission by teaching tolerance, acceptance and encouraging self-esteem on a daily basis. I have created a welcoming environment for all students. This allows me to support them in their daily adventures of learning who they are.
