    Hello, I am Jeanette Henson and I am excited to be the School Counselor at Wayland Bonds Elementary.  Along with my responsibilities as School Counselor, I am also the before/after care director, assistant archery coach, and 6th grade girls basketball coach.  I am starting my 10th year in education.  I taught 6th grade for four years, and have been a counselor for 6 years.  I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Central Oklahoma in December of 2007 and a Master in Education in School Counseling from the University of Central Oklahoma in May of 2012.  I am back at UCO and currently working towards becoming an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor).  My son, Daxton, and I love to travel, especially to the Major League Baseball stadiums.  We are huge baseball fans. 
     
    As School Counselor, my goal is to is to help develop and implement a comprehensive counseling program that is an integral part of the entire school program.  The program is designed to help every student be successful academically, emotionally, and socially.  I am dedicated to servicing all students, parents, and school staff.
     
    The counseling program will consist of the following:
     
    CLASSROOM COUNSELING

    • decision-making/problem-solving
    • friendship/positive relationships
    • goal setting

    These are not the only concerns that can be addressed in classroom guidance, individual counseling, and small group counseling.  These are just the most common concerns brought up by elementary students.  Please feel free to contact me regarding any other concerns that you might have for your child.
