The Mission of Morningside Elementary School’ school counseling program is to establish a culture of collaboration with all stakeholders to ensure every student is prepared for college, career and life.
Hi! I am Gillian Deal. I am so excited to be at Morningside Elementary School this year, serving as your school counselor.
I am originally from North Carolina where I attended UNC Chapel Hill (Go HEELS!) and I moved to ATL to get my masters in school counseling at Georgia State University (Go Panthers!) I live at home with my husband, Matt, and our chocolate lab Beau. We love to all three go on walks together in our neighborhood, explore, and find new delicious (dog- friendly)food spots.
Why did I choose School Counseling? I believe it is crucial for students to have positive supports in all areas of their lives, and as a school counselor, I can be one MORE support for them at school. I feel lucky to have a role in making sure all MES students feel safe and welcome when they walk through the doors.
