Crystal Brunson

Hello Northside Elementary Family! This is my fourth year working as a school counselor or social emotional learning counselor and my first academic year working at Northside Elementary. I have experience working in elementary and middle school settings.

I hold a Master of Science degree in School Counseling from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). In 2017, I graduated with my PhD in Counseling & Counselor Education from UNCG.

I am the mother of an 11-month old son named Caden. When I am not at work, I love movies, Latin dancing (when I have time), Zumba, reading books, and spending time with family.

I am so excited to support students as a part of Navigator Nation!
