Shelby County Schools




Guidance Mission Statement:

The mission of the School Counseling Program at Evans Elementary is to support students in their school community by developing and integrating a comprehensive guidance program that will assist students in academic, career and personal/social programs. This will allow children to develop a positive sense of self and become effective students, responsible citizens and lifelong learners.


I Believe:

  • All children are valuable and deserve respect.
  • All children can be taught appropriate behaviors and can learn and grow to reach their full potential.
  • All children learn best when they feel good about themselves
  • The School Counselor is a resource and an advocate for all students, staff, parents and the community.
  • A School Guidance program should be comprehensive in scope, developmental in nature and preventative in design.
  • A School Guidance program should be intentional and include academic, career and personal/social components.
  • Positive relationships in a nurturing environment is the key to student success
