All About Me


Welcome to The Creative Counselor.  I started this blog to share creative ways to counsel children.  I am an Elementary School Counselor in Lexington,  South Carolina.  I have been a school counselor since 1993 and received my National Board Certification in 2004.  Recently I just renewed my National Board Certification in 2013!  I love developing fun, creative ways for children to learn and share about the many topics that School Counselors teach.    I am known for saying "Let's not recreate the wheel", so you will see many activities that counselors have done over the years, but updated.  I love technology and think it is a great way to catch the attention of our students! I hope you enjoy these ideas.  I love helping others and don't mind sharing any of my ideas. Feel free to email me or check out my School Counseling website.

  6. Hi Michelle, I am wondering if you could email (or share with me through google docs) your "Are you smarter than your teacher?" test prep powerpoint. I tried downloading it, but it won't up in powerpoint. Not sure what happened, but it's super cute and would like to use it with our 3-4 graders this fall.
    Thanks!:)

  7. I tried to download the minion mayhem but the link kept taking me to "I can feel anger in my body". How do I go about getting this?
