Ready to embark on the 2017-2018 school year!

Hello! My name is April Elkins and I am Bradley Creek's school counselor. This is my 11th year at this wonderful elementary school (and there will be many more to come!).  My duties include classroom guidance lessons throughout grades K-5 (weekly in K-2 using the Mind-UP curriculum), small group counseling in a variety of domains, individual counseling (short-term), parent and teacher consultations, MTSS team member (student support team), Cheers 4 Peers chair (staff recognition/morale committee), parent book studies, PBIS team co-chair (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support), County Crisis Team member, and anything else that helps to create a positive climate within the school and community.

Prior to counseling here at Bradley Creek, I counseled in an Eastern Pennsylvania elementary school (1 yr.), taught autistic children (3 yrs.), and did nutrition counseling and personal training at a fitness center in PA (2 1/2 yrs.). Moving to a southern coastal town and working in an elementary school fit my personal goals 100% and I am grateful EVERYDAY to be here in Wilmington, and especially, here at Bradley Creek. I love my job and Mondays are still my favorite day!
