Meet the Counselor
My name is Paige Yeager and this is my first year here with the Tuscaloosa City School STARS Academy and my 11th year as a School Counselor. I believe that every child has the ability to succeed and achieve if they want to and every child deserves to have someone who believes in them! Let´s change this world!
What does a School Counselor do?
The mission of the school counseling department at STARS Academy is to provide all students access to a comprehensive program and to equip them with the skills necessary to achieve academic, personal/social, and career excellence. The ultimate goal of the program is for each student to leave with the knowledge, attitudes and skills to be lifelong learners who are able to make self-directed, realistic and responsible decisions.
What does that mean?
It means that from the moment that you enter our doors until the minute that you walk out, we are here for you! If you need personal help, got it; academic help, no problem; help with a problem at home, tell me; we are here for you!
