My name is Tara Phelps and I have been the school counselor at Lake Park Elementary for the past 10 years, but have been a school counselor for 21 years. I attended Valdosta State University where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Masters Degree in School Counseling and Guidance . I truly enjoy working with all students to assist them in reaching their utmost potential in the areas of personal/social, career exploration and academics. I facilitate classroom Guidance activities with each class every three weeks addressing a variety of topics. (see attached Guidance Plan) Additionally, I provide small group and individual counseling as needed and can also refer to outside counseling agencies.
