Mrs. Elizabeth Wells
Hello! My name is Beth Wells and I am the K-8 school counselor here at Central Lee! I graduated in 2012 from Western Illinois University with my bachelors in elementary education. I got my first job teaching third grade here at Central Lee. I then moved to teach fifth graders for two years in which I started my master’s degree in school counseling through Buena Vista University. I applied for the guidance counselor position in the summer of 2016 and was offered the job! I could not be any happier with how things have worked out and have enjoyed the job immensely so far. I am thrilled to still be a HAWK!

The school counseling program will help all students succeed in academics, career exploration, and personal and social development. The school counselor will work together with parents, students, the school, and community to create a beneficial environment.

As a result, this will lead them to be successful and active citizens in the community.
The beliefs of the Central Lee K-12 school counseling program are:
· All students can achieve academic success.
· All students should be given the knowledge in order to be college and career ready.
