Mrs. Jodie Shelley, Counselor
Hi! My name is Jodie Shelley. I'm so excited to be Webb Elementary's new School Counselor. I have worked for Houston County Schools for fifteen years. I look forward to meeting students and parents. Call, email, or come by my office soon. This is going to be a SUPER year!
I CARE ABOUT KIDS!
My name is Jodie Shelley, and I am the guidance counselor at Webb Elementary. Many of you may not have had a guidance counselor when you were in school. For those of you who did, there is a good possibility that guidance counselors have different functions than they did 10 to 20 years ago.
First and foremost, it is my responsibility to help your child get the best possible education. A good education includes not only learning to read, write, and do math, but learning good social skills. This means, among other things, learning how to get along with other children, making good decisions, controlling anger, accepting responsibility, and being aware of strengths and weaknesses. Many of these skills are taught at home. It is my intent to supplement learning that takes place at home with small group and classroom guidance. All students will participate in classroom guidance lessons.
I am also in the building to help students who are facing particular difficulties. Such family disruptions as an illness, death, or divorce may affect children at school. If your family is experiencing anything out of the ordinary, please let me know. If I am aware of any special problems your child might be facing, I can observe your child and help both of you with difficulties that might surface.
One of my major functions is to be of help to parents. If you have a particular concern about your child, I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the matter.
It is important to remember that school personnel and parents working together is a winning combination for children. All children deserve to be winners. Together, we can help your child realize this goal.
If I can be of any help to you, please call 334-792-5744. If I am not available, please leave a message, and I will return your call as soon as possible. You may also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
