Terri Chester, MA, LCMHC
It's great to be working at William Lenoir with you! Here's a little bit of information about me. :)
I live in Boone with my spouse, Timothy. We enjoy being outside every chance we get - hiking, kayaking, gardening, doing yardwork.
I received my teaching certificate and my counseling degrees from Appalachian State University. I am a licensed school counselor and a licensed clinical mental health counselor. I have lots of roles here at WLMS - and I am part of a team. I work in the Student Support Services department, along with a social worker, a nurse, and a school psychologist. Our job is about helping students and families have the supports needed to have a successful school experience. Click onto some other pages to find more information about ways we can help.
Before I became a counselor, I was a reading teacher, so I know how important it is for young people to use their time at school to LEARN! I also know that sometimes other concerns such as stress, anxiety, peer relationships,etc., get in the way of students being able to focus on their school work. My goal is to help you be more successful at school and cope with issues that may come up as part of being a middle-schooler.
