Hi! My name is Candice Thurman and I am your School Counselor. This is my first year at Hasty Elementary and I am excited to be a part of the Wildcat family. Although this my first year at Hasty, this is my twelfth year as a School Counselor and I absolutely love being a counselor. I received my BA in Psychology from Salem College and a MA Ed.S from Gardner-Webb University in Mental Health Counseling. Prior to working for the school system, I worked in Mental Health with individuals of all ages and needs. After several years in the Mental Health environment, I discovered my true passion for working with children. I realized I wanted to move to a setting that allowed me the opportunity to impact students on a daily basis which naturally led me to the school system.
As a School Counselor I have various roles, such as, individual counseling, small group counseling, classroom guidance, collaborating with parents and teachers, and serving on various committees to address academic, social, emotional, and personal needs of our students. I serve on the Problem Solving Team, PBIS team, School Improvement Team, and AIG Team. I believe being an active part of these teams is so valuable in assisting in the overall development of our students. I look forward to serving all of the students of Hasty Elementary School.
