Hi I am Kayla Mallard and this is my 3rd year working as the school counselor here at Zebulon Elementary! I've loved getting to know and work with the students and staff here, especially because I attended this school myself when I was a child! I am a triplet, so I have two sisters who are my same age, and one of them works here with me as a second grade teacher. We do our best to not confuse people, and I was super grateful to have been given a "nickname" by a student my first year here -- Ms. M!
What do School Counselors do? A little bit of everything! With the help of our other counselor, Mrs. Hill, I work with students on an individual, small group, and school wide! We work with students who need help with their feelings, things like self control and self esteem, and even with school related tasks like time management and organizational skills. We also work as coordinators for 504 plans, help out doing intervention, and coordinate with staff to meet student needs.
I love getting to be a part of this community and getting to work with the students here. They are incredible and inspire me to do my best every day! If you need to reach me for any reason, my contact information is listed below.
*Note: While we are in remote learning, the best way to reach me will either be through email or my Google Voice number.
