Welcome to the Bon Meade Elementary School Counselor web page!

 

Hello!  My name is Amanda Spirnak.  I am your child’s school counselor. As a school counselor I work with ALL students to help them remove barriers to student learning and help encourage success. As a school counselor I am here to help students reach academic, social and personal success. I believe that every student deserves to feel safe and connected to our school.   I look forward to getting to know your child or continuing to support your child as they continue their education at Bon Meade Elementary.

Thank you for your support!
