Meet Beach School
Counselor Nancy Omonte, M.S.
"Kids like boundaries, they also like to be pushed, need to learn what failure is all about, need guidance.”Daley Thompson, Olympic Gold MedalistAlmost everyone educated in the El-Hi (elementary through high school) system in the United States remembers a teacher, a coach or a guidance counselor that made a difference in their lives. Traditionally, guidance counselors came into play at the Middle School level; teachers at the Elementary level usually provided guidance help. But the Lee County School District has added School Counselors to the elementary school staffs, providing much needed help with situations that are not readily solved during class time, but that negatively impact not only the child with the problem, but often, their classmates as well. At Beach Elementary, this new position has been filled since November of last year by Nancy Omonte.
