Stephanie Williams
  6th Grade School Counselor

My name is Stephanie Williams and this is my first year as a School Counselor at Har-Bur Middle School. I received my B.A. in Secondary Education and English from the University of Rhode Island. I quickly realized what I loved most about education was connecting with students, which led me to School Counseling. I received my M.S. in Counselor Education from Central Connecticut State University this past year. While pursuing my degree, I worked as a paraprofessional and substitute teacher. I also spent my internship year at Farmington High School. 

There is truly nothing I enjoy more than working with students and supporting their academic and personal growth. I am looking forward to a fun, exciting, and successful year!

Why Middle School Counselors?
Middle school students are characterized by rapid physical growth, curiosity about their world and an emerging self-identity. Through a comprehensive developmental school counseling program, counselors work as a team member with school staff, parents and the community to create a caring, supportive climate and atmosphere whereby young adolescents can achieve academic success. Middle school counselors enhance the learning process and promote academic achievement. School counseling programs are essential for students to achieve optimal personal growth, acquire positive social skills and values, set appropriate career goals and realize the full academic potential to become productive, contributing members of the world community. The professional middle school counselor holds a master’s degree and required state certification in school counseling. Maintaining certification includes on-going professional development to stay current with education reform and challenges facing today’s students. Professional association membership is encouraged as it enhances the school counselor’s knowledge and effectiveness.
