Who is Ms. Gowan?
Hello parents and guardians of our wondeful Humphries Elementary School students! My name is Rachel Gowan and I am thrilled to be the new school counselor and to have the opportunity to work with all of the students here at the best elementary school in the city of Atlanta! I received my Master's in School Counseling from Georgia State University in 2017. Prior to studying School Counseling, I received my Master's in Mental Health Counseling from Georgia State and worked as a substance abuse counselor for 2 years. Outside of my love for counseling and working with students, I enjoy practicing martial arts, running, and spending time with my husband and our puppy, Sam.
Humphries Elementary School Counseling Mission
The mission of the school counseling department at Humphries Elementary school is to work to ensure equitable opportunities for all students through a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate school counseling curriculum that promotes academic, personal/social, and career success. I work in partnership with students, their families, faculty, and other members of the community to provide a safe environment of support that helps foster lifelong learners.
