Counseling Corner:

Each week, I have the pleasure of teaching your sweet children “Guidance” lessons.  Coming from the middle school, this term is a bit foreign to me and I wondered if maybe it is to you as well.  The other specials classes are pretty self-explanatory, such as Art, PE, and Music.  But what exactly do your children do in “Guidance”?  My hope is that your children will learn important life skills from my Guidance lessons.  The School Counseling standards focus on teaching skills that prepare students to be successful in school and life.  Topics will include social-emotional learning such as understanding feelings, empathy for others, making and keeping friends, etc.  Other topics will encompass academic success with lessons focusing on study skills, test taking, organization, working together etc.  Later in the year, I will also be providing lessons that will encourage students to begin exploring possibilities for future careers.  

In the next few weeks, I will be interviewing for small groups focusing on changing families,  social skills, and friendship.  If you would like more information regarding these opportunities or you would like your child to be included in one of these groups, please email me at

I’m looking forward to meeting with those of you who are interested in getting involved here at Glen Arden with our RAM coaches volunteer opportunities.  Our training and interest meeting will be this Thursday, September 10 at 12:00 in room 206 (my counseling classroom).  Hope to see you then!

We are also forming an Eblen Charities Walk/Run/Roll team for Glen Arden.  Please email me if you are interested in joining or financially sponsoring our team. The event will take place at AB Tech campus on October 10 beginning at 9:00 am.

What a great time putting on our Empire/Edge Lacrosse Clinic in PE last week! 


Asheville Edge Lacrosse and Empire Lacrosse are the local girls and boys lacrosse clubs here in Western North Carolina.  We have children ages 7 - 18 and are focused on getting the word out that lacrosse is here and want to spread our love of this great game to area youth. 
Fletcher Park is where we hold our fall instructional clinic on Sunday afternoons, and when spring comes we have a recreation league with practices twice a week and games on certain Saturdays.  Mr. Honeycutt has been generous enough to let us spend several days with the students at Glen Arden during their PE rotations and the kids' responses have been great!  Everyone seems to enjoy getting a chance to meet the coaches and holding the sticks, working on basic drills, etc.
We have several Glen Arden Ram students already a part of Edge and Empire and hope to see more kids at our fall clinic starting September 20th! 

Empire Lacrosse Registration is available online at
