Welcome to the GHES School Counseling Webpage!

My name is Amanda Houser, and I have been a School Counselor at George Hildebrand Elementary School since 2003. Prior to coming to GHES, I taught eighth grade English Language Arts and Math for ten years and worked as a Middle School Counselor as well.  I have a BS degree in Middle Grades Education from Appalachian State University, an MA degree in School Counseling from Gardner-Webb University, and licensure in School Administration from Gardner-Webb University.  I enjoy being a school counselor and working with the students at my school.
