Hello all! My name is Kristi Swaim. I graduated in 2017 from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science in Child Development. Shortly after, I received my Master of Education in School Counseling from Salem College.
This is my sixth year working with Yadkin County Schools, and my third year as a school counselor. I look forward to working with your student(s)!
I am here to help you and your students by providing:
Students may be seen for individual counseling, in which I will meet with students short-term to work through problems affecting them at school.
Small Group Counseling
I facilitate small groups for students who have similar needs in a certain area, so that students can learn from each other and grow together.
Referrals for School-Based Therapy; (Therapist: Lauren Hines)
I will be visiting all classes at YES to teach guidance lessons as part of the encore rotation. These lessons prioritize Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) for all students, and include self-regulation skills, coping skills, character development, as well as career and college readiness. Currently, we are using the following curriculum:
-The Zones of Regulation
If you have any concerns about your child, you can contact me at (336) 551-1175, ext. 8024 or [email protected]. I am looking forward to having a wonderful year with you and your students!
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and our little dog. We are both huge animal lovers!
