Counseling Center

Welcome to our counseling webpage.  We have two school counselors on staff at EMMS: 

-Mrs. Ashley Bartlett


I'm Mrs. Bartlett! This will be my fifth year on the job at EMMS and I'm thrilled to be here! A little bit about me: I was born in Charlotte, NC and moved over to Waynesville, NC when I was about 4 years old. I graduated high school at Tuscola and went to college at Montreat on a golf scholarship.  After Montreat, I went straight into the graduate school program at Western Carolina University. I got married right after I graduated from WCU and moved to McDowell County where my husband and I have lived for a little over five years now. We were blessed to welcome baby Jace into our family this past year! I can't wait to see what's in store for us at EMMS this year and pumped to be here!! :)


-Mrs. Crystal Street


I'm Mrs. Street.  This is my second year at East McDowell Middle School.  I am so excited to be here!  I was born and raised in Rutherford County, NC and am a 1995 graduate of RS Central High School (yes, you may do the math:)!  I hold an undergraduate degree in middle school math and language arts from Gardner-Webb University and taught middle school math for twelve wonderful years.  I also hold a BSN and have several years of experience in the nursing field.  I have a passion for both, but middle schoolers have my heart!  I am looking forward to continuing my journey as your school counselor.  My family and I currently reside in Rutherfordton and will be welcoming a baby boy into our family this October!
