Guidance

Welcome to McKissick's School Counseling Page

Hi! My name is Michelle Stinehart. I have my Masters and Ed.S. in School Counseling from Clemson University, and I love being a McKissick Knight! My husband is a 5th grade teacher in Pickens County, and we have two beautiful daughters. If I can help in any way, please feel free to contact me at michellestinehart@pickens.k12.sc.us or at (864) 397-2204.

Our counseling program at McKissick is based upon the implementation of four major components.

  • The first component is Guidance Curriculum. I will be in each classroom monthly teaching lessons on various subjects and emphasizing our character education program, Lifelong Guidelines and LIFESKILLS.
  • The second component is Individual Student Planning. This component includes assisting students with their academic goals and achievements, testing students, and beginning to expose them to career development.
  • The third component is Responsive Services which includes individual counseling with students, small group counseling, crisis response and counseling, consultation, and referrals to outside agencies.
  • The last component is System Support in which I am involved in a variety of activities that support the school and community relationships.
