Lion Families,

Welcome to the 20-21 school year. I am your school counselor here at Fayetteville Street. This year will be my fourth year providing social-emotional, personal, behavior, and academic support to our students. I have a masters in school counseling, an undergraduate degree in Psychology and I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). I am a firm believer in the power of relationships. Relationships are the foundation for student achievement. My goal for the 20-21 school year is to support staff, students, and families in building virtual relationships to keep us connected during this time. I am available during our virtual learning for students in the virtual classroom as well as individually. Please reach out to me if you need support or have any questions. We are looking forward to an exciting and high achieving school year. Our Lions can accomplish anything they set their minds to!

Ms. G

I only have a minute.

Sixty seconds in it.

Forced upon me, I did not choose it,

But I know that I must use it.

Give account if I abuse it.

Suffer, if I lose it.

Only a tiny little minute,

But eternity is in it.

Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
