Guidance Counselor

Dear Parents,

My name is Lelia Ferguson and I am a guidance counselor at Walls Elementary School. I have been working as a school counselor in DeSoto County Schools since January 2011. I attended the University of Mississippi, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. I am also a National Certified School Counselor.

I will be working at WES to provide coordination of counseling services for students. Also, I will be consulting with teachers, school staff, and parents to assist in meeting the needs of students here at WES.  When needed, I will provide individual or group counselling services to meet the developmental, preventive, and remedial needs of these students. I will also provide additional resources in the community if needed. There are times when the school counseling would be most effective if the child and family were supported by additional community agencies.

While some students may seek to meet with me individually, teachers or administrators may often refer students to see me. If I plan to meet regularly with a child individually or with a group, I will contact the parent for permission. I believe the best way to work with a child is to work as a team with administrators, teachers, and parents to ensure student success.

If you need to contact me with any questions or concerns, I can be reached by phone at 
662-781-1280 or via email at lelia.ferguson@dcsms.org. I am happy to speak with you about your child anytime.

I am looking very forward to working closely with all of you in an effort to ensure that your child has a successful school year.

Sincerely,

Lelia Ferguson
