Meet Mrs. Byrom

While this is my second year working as the Logan-Rogersville Middle School Counselor, I am not new to the school district. I have been an LR Wildcat for 24 years (12 years as a teacher and 13 years as a student)! I previously taught English Learners (EL) grades PreK -12 and 7th and 8th grade ELA at Logan-Rogersville, 4 years of Pre K ESL at Monett, and 2 years of English in Honduras and Thailand. I am so excited about the 2019-2020 school year and the privilege to work with such a great group of LR Wildcats!

Middle School Counseling Goals

The role of the counselor is to provide necessary and essential support for students in the areas of social/emotional development, academic development, and career development. Each area of development has goals which can be achieved either through district wide, grade level, small groups, or individual programs.

Social/Emotional Development

  • Focuses on developing skills and strategies to help understand one's role as a member of a diverse society by learning how to respectfully interact with others and develop skills to deal with difficult situations.

Academic Development

  • Focuses on developing skills to assist academic and transitioning success.

Career Development

  • Focuses on providing information about different careers, developing goals and creating a path to help reach these goals.
