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.
Our society tends to focus on what goes on in families that aren't functioning very well. However, researchers agree that for most people, learning what works is more helpful.

Teenage friendships can be wonderful or full of drama and sometimes both. As parents it's sometimes hard to watch the ups and downs of our kids' relationships.
Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. We've all felt anger -- perhaps as a fleeting annoyance or as a full-fledged rage.
Teaching young people responsibility is an important task. Children aren't born with the ability and must learn to be accountable.
