Mrs. Susan Wales
Hello! My name is Susan Wales and I am the counselor at Brookhill Elementary. I have been part of the Brookhill family as the counselor for two years, but I was a Brookhill parent for five years when my youngest son, Sam, was a student here.
I started my career in education thirty years ago teaching kindergarten. I also taught first grade. Twenty years ago, I went back to school to get my masters degree in School Counseling at UNA. Since then, I have worked as a counselor for all grades from kindergarten through twelfth grade. I received National Board Certification as a counselor in 2007. I love what I do and am excited about the upcoming school year!
I have been married to Bill Wales for 31 years and we have three sons, Ben, Tom and Sam. Ben works as a software engineer at Dynetics and is married to Kristin, a second grade teacher. They are expecting our first grandchild in February :) Tom is an architect and is married to Courtney, a graphic designer. They live in Boston with a calico kitty named Pip. Sam is a senior at Athens High School and is involved in a number of school activities, including football. Go Eagles!
Please feel free to contact me if I can help you or your child in any way this year. I am looking forward to our weekly classroom lessons and working with individuals and families. Brookhill is a wonderful place and I enjoy working with all of you.
