School Counselor

  •  Meet our School Counselor

    Ms. Lindsey Bauer


    Hi!  My name is Lindsey Bauer and I am the school counselor at Odum Elementary School.  I believe all children have the ability to succeed and have unique skills that can be beneficial in the learning process.  Additionally, I think students should be taught to be active participants in their learning, both in the academic sector and the areas of personal/social development.  As the counselor at OES, I will be doing classroom guidance with students.  Classroom guidance topics cover a range of concepts that are aligned with the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Standards.  Some examples of classroom guidance topics are character education traits, Good Touch Bad Touch, study skills, career development, and peer relations.  As part of the guidance program, I will be leading small group counseling.  Small group counseling allows students dealing with similar events to come together and work through feelings and emotions.  Small group topics may range from divorce groups to social skills training to group about anger control.  Lastly as the counselor at OES, I will also provide individual counseling to students who may need someone to listen to their concerns.  However, this is not long-term.

    Along with these roles and responsibilities, I will also help with 504 plans and the Response to Intervention process.  As the school counselor, I want to advocate for the students, parents, and teachers to help better the educational experience for all.

    Please feel free to contact me at the school with any questions or concerns.
