Mrs. Blake & Mrs. Timmins

The mission of the Belmont Middle School counseling department is to support and lead our students 
through collaborative partnerships with families, administration, teachers, and the community. Through 
diverse initiatives, we will foster the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all students. 
Our goal is to cultivate a safe and respectful educational environment where all students become 
lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and ethical community members.

School counseling is a school-wide resource and support service for students, parents, and fellow educators. We strive to promote student success through academic achievement, social and individual learning, and career development.

Belmont Middle School has two school counselors: Annette Blake, M.Ed. in school counseling grades 5&7 and Mrs. Timmins, M.Ed., NCC. in school counseling grades 6&8.

The school counseling department offers a variety of services for all students, which include: individual and group counseling, academic advice, behavior planning, crisis counseling and peer mediation training.

                         How do we help?

Our goal is to focus primarily on addressing the developmental needs of all students. Mrs. Blake and Mrs. Timmins work with all students through classroom curriculum. These lessons are aligned with the standards put forth by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA). Some topics include bullying and teasing prevention, developing friendship skills, dealing with peer pressure, improving self-image, ethics and value, goal setting and career exploration. Parents and teachers can request individual counseling sessions for their student. School counselors will consult with parents, teachers, and administration to ensure that all of the adults working with your child are collaboratively working together.
