Ms. Leigh Corner
Hello Weems family. I am so excited to be working as a school counselor for the elementary level - in my experience these students are creative, imaginative, and willing to try anything!
I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with my Master's in School Counseling, and prior to that I received my Bachelor's in Psychology from Saint Leo University. I also studied theatre all throughout my undergraduate career, so I look forward to incorporating that into the work I do with my students. I am also an advocate for mindfulness, visualization, and yoga. There are so many proven benefits to using these practices.
I have held small groups on topics ranging from anger management to grief and loss, and I have taught classroom guidance lessons on topics such as test anxiety and career aspirations.
I will primarily be working with 1st and 3rd grade at Weems. Here's to a wonderful school year!
