School Counselor

Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year! My name is Leslie Bentley and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year. This will be my fifth year as a School Counselor, but my first year at Thomson Elementary School. I attended Augusta University and received my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Criminal Justice. I received my Master's Degree in Counselor Education from Augusta University as well. 
I look forward to getting to know the students, parents, and community. As the school counselor, I want to help our students be successful in school and in life outside of school. I will help students in the areas of academics and social-emotional growth. In order to help our students, I will collaborate with both families and school professionals. 
As the counselor, I will work with students to provide classroom guidance on a variety of topics, as well as meet individually and in small group settings. I encourage you to contact your child's teacher to ensure success. It is my honor and pleasure to work within the McDuffie County community. 
If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments you are encouraged to contact me at the information provided below.
