Meet Your Counselor

Hello Parents and Guardians,

My name is Tierra Henderson and I would like to introduce myself to you as the School Counselor for grades K-5 at Polaris Tech. I am a native of Ridgeland and a proud graduate of Ridgeland-Hardeeville High School. I received my bachelor’s in psychology from Coastal Carolina University and my master’s in school counseling from Walden University. This is my first year as a school counselor and I look forward to servicing you and your child(ren) this school year.

As the Elementary School Counselor, I will follow guidelines for developing a comprehensive school counseling program based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model. Our school counseling program focuses on providing services and interventions based on the needs of all learners. We will support learners in their academic, college & career, character education, and social-emotional development.
Our services will include:
Teaching classroom lessons on academic achievement, college & career readiness, and social-emotional development.

Facilitating small group lessons based on identified needs (with parent/guardian permission). Providing short-term individual counseling (2-8 sessions) and crisis counseling as needed.

Supporting parents/guardians with referrals to community resources based on learners’ needs. Collaborating with various stakeholders for the success of your learner.

Please feel free to contact me regarding questions, concerns, or support for your learner.
