Mrs. Ashley Bartley
Pull up a chair. :) My name is Mrs. Bartley, and I am the full-time School Counselor at Hugh K. Cassell Elementary. I received my B.A. in Psychology from The University of Virginia and my M.Ed. in School Counseling from The College of William & Mary. I am also a National Board Certified Counselor. Before Cassell, I was the full-time counselor at Riverheads Elementary for six years. Before RES, I worked at Locust Grove Middle School in Orange County, VA. I completed my internships at elementary, middle, and high schools in Williamsburg and Newport News, VA. The counselors have offices available for counseling, group, and parent meetings. We travel to classrooms for specials. I enjoy working with your children to help them succeed! Please contact me if you have any questions about the School Counseling program, and don't forget to check for current information in the school newsletter every six weeks.
Individual, Small Groups, and Character Education
I work with students in a variety of settings, including individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom guidance. I also run small groups for grades K-5 on an as-needed basis. I primarily work with grades PreK, K, 1, 3, and 5, and Mrs. K-J works with students in grades 2 and 4. She joins us every other week from North River Elementary.
The mission of the Cassell Elementary School Counseling Program is to collaborate with staff, families, and the community to address the academic, career, and personal/social needs of our students, empowering them to become responsible citizens, life-long learners, and caring individuals who respect themselves and others.
