Counselor Bell

I am Mrs. Bell. I am excited to be serving as a counselor for Bessie Coleman.  I will be working with the following this year:

     8th-grade students' last names beginning with A-L

     All 6th-grade students' last names beginning with A-Z 

I have worked in education for 20 years and this will be my fifth year at Bessie Coleman. I am proud to say that I am a veteran of the US Army and before my move into education I maintained a career in telecommunications.

I hold strongly to the belief that every student should be well-balanced. Scholars need to be developed in every area- social, emotional, and academic. Educating the whole child is the beginning of wisdom and success. 

I am very excited to be here and look forward to an exciting year.
