Hello! My name is Lynn Burns and I am the counselor for Ozark Upper Elementary. I knew at an early age that I wanted to be an educator. My mother is in education, as are both of her sisters, so to say that I am blessed with three of the best advocates for students would be an understatement!
I knew I wanted to be a school counselor because I had the greatest school counselor, Mike Gibbons, Sr. He loved every student, he loved their stories, and he treasured the time he spent with them; the passion he had for school counseling impacted me as a high school student, and continues to impact me today as a counselor. I truly believe I have the BEST job in the world!
As a school counselor, I do daily classroom guidance lessons, as well as individual and small group sessions. I advocate for students by working with administrators, faculty, families, and staff to help meet the needs of the whole child; aiding in their development into lifelong learners.
