The Elementary School Guidance Counselor

My name is Sherry Waldrop and it is my pleasure to serve at North Jackson Elementary as Guidance Counselor. I am beginning my 13th year as Guidance Counselor in the Barren County school system, and I am very excited about the upcoming school year.

The elementary School Guidance Counselor:

  • Counsels individually with children
  • Teaches weekly guidance lessons in classrooms
  • Conducts small group counseling sessions
  • Processes referrals for the testng of special needs children
  • Consults with parents in private conference about their child
  • Consults with teachers
  • Conducts parenting workshops
  • Participates in curriculum development
  • Provides information on community resources


I have a few reminders which will be helpful as you plan for your child's enrollment.  I will need a copy of their birth certificate, social security card (optional), current immunization certificate, physical and eye exam (if this is your child's initial entry).  I have provided a link which you can use if you need to obtain a birth certificate.  If you child is currently enrolled in a public school, I will request the school for their records.
Order your Kentucky birth certificate here.
