Ms. April Hamlin

My name is April Hamlin and I am honored to be the 12th grade counselor at Athens High School.  I look forward to guiding our students through their senior year while connecting them with the right people and resources to help further their current and future plans. Growing up in a military family, I attended school all over the world, but graduated from Athens High School in 1990, then attended Auburn University, graduating in 1994 with a French/English B.A., and going on to earn a Master’s of French Studies and a Master’s of Education, also from Auburn University.  I taught French and English for 3 years at Sparkman High School, received a Master’s in School Counseling from Alabama A&M in 2000, and have been a School Counselor grades Pre-K-12 since February of 2001. I have two amazing children, Van Hamlin, a hard-working freshman at the University of North Alabama, and Thea Hamlin, a very busy junior at Elkmont High School.  These two young adults have been a vital part of my experience as a school counselor and have definitely helped me see the parenting side of having teenagers! We love to travel, eat good food, and spend time with family and friends at our home or playing on the Elk River.

Please feel free to contact me at any point concerning your 12th grade student!
