Degrees and Certifications:
Hello everyone, my name is Shelby Snyder and I would like to introduce myself to you as the new full-time School Counselor at Forest Grove Elementary. I’m thrilled to be joining your school family and I’m looking forward to lots of new adventures this year. I will facilitate classroom guidance, small groups and individual counseling sessions that will focus on academic, career and the social/emotional development of each child.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master's degree in School Counseling from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. After graduating with my Bachelor’s degree I worked at a non profit organization as a case manager for over two years. Although I loved my job, I decided to go back to school to become a School Counselor so that I can make a difference in the lives of children.
This will be my first year as a School Counselor, and I consider myself to be lucky to have the opportunity to pursue my passion here at Forest Grove Elementary. My hope is that this school year will be full of fun and a successful experience for all students.
