Mrs. Tracy Williford, Middle School Counselor
At Bethany Middle School we strive to help students develop academically, socially, and emotionally by teaching the importance of being productive, prompt, polite, and prepared. Students attend weekly grade-level guidance lessons where they learn about empathy, kindness, study skills, bullying, and many other important and timely topics. I take the time early in the school year to get to know each student personally and continually encourage them to visit my office if they are ever in need of guidance or just need someone to talk to. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
I love working with middle school students. They’re old enough to have an educated conversation with you but not so old that they think they have all the answers. They are the perfect age to be introduced to what I like to call “truths for living.”
On December 17 and 18 most of you will take at least one semester test. For some of you, it might be the first time you’ve had to prepare for a comprehensive test — a test that covers the material of an entire semester.
We want to encourage our children to be joyful givers and to reap the benefits that one experiences when giving selflessly.
This week in FLEX we'll be talking about the importance of being thankful and showing gratitude.
Ah, the question that educators have been asking students for decades is now more important than ever.
