Miss Kelsey Eckler, Counselor

Hi Rolesville Rams and Families! I'm Kelsey Eckler and am so excited to be a part of the Rolesville Elementary Team.  I grew up in Syracuse, New York and moved down to Raleigh in 2021 to soak in the sun and the warm weather.  I graduated from SUNY Potsdam with a Bachelor's Degree in Childhood/Early Childhood Education.  I then received my Master's Degree in School Counseling from Long Island University and completed my Certificate of Advanced Studies through SUNY Brockport.  I have been a school counselor since 2017, but have worked in various school settings focused in supporting students in special education.
 
I have a cat named Fiona who occasionally likes to pretend she's a dog.  When I am able, I love to travel and spend time with my friends and family.  I enjoy hiking and love going to the beach.  
 
I am overjoyed to be a part of the Rolesville family and truly enjoy getting to know each student.  I work to support the students and facilitate their growth as individuals in the community.

Mrs. Melissa Thacher, Counselor

Hi!  I'm Melissa Thacher.  I grew up in Texas and Virginia, but my husband is a Raleigh native.  I graduated from James Madison University and UNC Charlotte.  I have a master's degree in counseling and am a National Board Certified Teacher in School Counseling.  I have been a school counselor since 2003 and have at RES since 2016. 
 
I have two children, Pierce and Carlie, and a puppy named Ruby. In my free time, I love going to food festivals, boating, and reading.
 
I think Rolesville is a great place to learn because our focus is always on what is best for children.  Our staff continues to come up with new and engaging ways to reach our students.
 
I chose to work at Rolesville Elementary because our school is a tight-knit community with a small town feel.   As large as Wake County has gotten, it is comforting to be in a place where people know and care about each other.
 
Mrs. Thacher is on campus Monday, Wednesday and alternating Fridays.

Mrs. Katy Greer, Counselor

Hello Rolesville Elementary students and families!  My name is Katy Greer.  I joined RES as School Counselor in 2020 and love being part of this amazing staff and community.  I graduated from the University of Delaware and Virginia Commonwealth University.  My master’s degree is in Counselor Education.  Prior to working at RES, I worked at the preschool level and volunteered in classrooms at two other WCPSS elementary schools.  My experience also includes work in the field of Human Resources and a brief break to raise my children.
 
I live in Wake Forest and outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family including my husband Chad and our kids, Thomas, Elaina and Clara.  I love doing fun activities around the Triangle, the beach, outdoors, and travel.  I also love watching my kids participate in their extracurricular activities including baseball, girl scouts, and tumbling.
 
I enjoy building relationships with students and families and working alongside our experienced staff and student support team to guide students toward a positive trajectory at school.  I have a passion for recognizing each student’s unique strengths and for helping them be successful at school in the academic, personal/social, and career domains.
