Herbert, Amanda (Counselor)

'Virtual Days' -  I can be reached via email  or phone every weekday between 8:00 - 3:30.

To contact me, please phone me between the hours listed above, using Bell's main phone number (828) 298-3789 or my separate number:  (828) 407-0172 or email me at amanda.herbert@bcsemail.org. Please note that while the 407-0172 phone line is confidential it is not a secure forum for personal issues. If either parents or students wish to speak with me after my office hours, please leave me a voice mail and I will return the phone call on the following day. 

Learning Management System: I will be providing social-emotional learning support and resources via homeroom teachers' Google Classroom for third, fourth and fifth graders. Kindergarten through Second grade will be able to access social-emotional learning support and resources  via their teachers' See Saw account.  

I intend to provide extra resources and helpful links for students and for families  via this web page so please check for updates and additions.

Please let me know how I can be of any help during this time! 

I am so happy to be here at Bell! I became the  full-time school counselor at Bell in August 2019 after being the part-time school counselor at both Avery's Creek Elementary School and Fairview Elementary School for many years. It is so nice to have a permanent home and I am so glad that Bell is that place for me! I have a Bachelor's degree in English from the University of Connecticut and a Masters of Education in School Counseling) from Western Carolina University.

I provide guidance lessons to all classrooms using the Second Step Social Emotional curriculum. I also offer individual and small group counseling to students who may need extra support. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me in case I can be of any assistance at all to you or your child.
