I am Mrs. Eagin Evans the school counselor at Highland Rim School. I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and my Master's degree in School Counseling from Middle Tennessee State University. This is my third year as being the school counselor at Highland Rim. I absolutely love being at HRS and getting to know all the students. I love helping them in anyway I can.
I go into the K-3 classrooms every other week where I teach guidance lessons on various topics including self-esteem, manners, citizenship, kindness, responsibilities, conflict resolution, career education, and more. I am typically in the Intermediate school every week and work with them on manners, goals, testing, citizenship, character, and career topics.
With middle school, I go into their computer class every other week and focus a lot of time on career/college readiness, bullying behavior and conflict resolution, peer pressures, and kindness toward others.
With 8th grade students, I focus a lot of their time on preparing for the transition to Ninth Grade Academy, Lincoln County High School, and preparing for college and life after high school. I also work with them on developing a 4-year plan that I go over with parents at our 8th grade parent night that is typically scheduled in late March.
One of my favorite parts of my job is group counseling. I have groups for 5th-8th groups during lunch throughout the year. In these groups of students we focus on topics such as academic success, changing families, assertiveness, friendships and many more.
I am available to you and your child for any reason needed. If your child is having trouble with academics in school, difficulty with friendships, or problems at home, please feel free to contact me through e-mail or by school phone. If I can be of any assistance to you and your child, please let me know, and I will do my best to help.
Also, be sure to check out the links. There are a lot of useful websites that I recommend. The links listed under college information have a lot of important information that can be helpful to any parent and student, especially 8th grade students looking into colleges and career planning. There are also some useful links geared towards keeping our children healthy and drug-free.
