Hello!
My name is Candace Barnes and I am so excited to be apart of the Lamar Elementary School Family! As your School Counselor, I am here to help ALL students be successful socially, emotionally, and behaviorally so they may access their
education without barriers.

Here’s what I do at our school:
Classroom Lessons - I visit all grades to teach social-emotional skills such as feelings, communication, problem solving,
diversity, respect, ect.
Small Group Counseling - I facilitate small groups for students who need a little extra support in a certain area.
Individual Counseling - I meet with students short-term to work through problems affecting them at school.
Consultation with Staff/Parents - I am available to meet/talk with teachers and parents to help support students and provide resources and education about issues affecting children.

Here’s what you should know about me:
• I am ONE part of the team that works to help your child succeed.
• I like to get to know ALL students so they may feel connected and safe while they’re with us.
• I respect your right and your child’s right to privacy. Confidentiality is a big part of my job.
• I love it when parents reach out to me for questions, concerns, and to share positive things about your child.
• I love the work that I do and feel very passionate about helping children become respectful, resourceful and responsible citizens!
