About me

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself! My name is Ms. Eversman and I am the new School Counselor at David L. Rainer Elementary School. This is my first year as a School Counselor and I am so excited to be joining the DLR family! I just graduated from Valdosta State University with my Master's of Education in Counselor Education, and am passionate about providing every student with outstanding counseling services. I think this will be the best year ever!


What does a school counselor do?

As a School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all students. I look forward to offering support to the DLR students, staff, families, and community. I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups, conducting classroom counseling lessons, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all DLR students.

You may have noticed above that I put in bold and underlined the word, “all” students. Sometimes when the term “counselor” is heard, some may perceive that a counselor may only work with a select few students in a 1:1 counseling capacity, but that is not the case! School Counseling programs reach and meet the needs of all students in a school through many various ways, including those listed above. I am here to advocate for all students.
