Hello and Welcome to the S&S Elementary Guidance and Counseling Page!
My name is Bambi Pelzel, and I am the S&S Elementary School Counselor. I am an S&S graduate, and I’m proud to be part of the Ram Nation. I live in Sadler with my husband, Kevin. We have been married for 10 years, and we have four beautiful children. Will is a second grader and my girls, Annabelle, Bridget, and Chloe, are in kindergarten.
After graduating from S&S High School, I attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Later, I went to University of North Texas in Denton where I earned a Masters of Education degree in Counseling. I taught at Terrell ISD for one year before moving back to this area. I taught in Pilot Point ISD for three years, and served as a counselor for six years. I stayed at home with my triplets for three years before joining the staff at S&S Elementary as the school counselor. I’m excited to be here, and I look forward to working with you and your child(ren).
The School Counseling Program at S&S Elementary supports the school community, students, parents, and staff in providing a positive learning environment that is favorable to developing skills for success today and tomorrow. The guidance program is directed toward the personal, social, emotional, intellectual, and career growth of each student. The goal of the program is to provide each child with the opportunity to develop a positive sense of self and become effective students, responsible citizens, and lifelong learners.
As the counselor, I am dedicated to the belief that an effective program of guidance and counseling is an integral part of the total education process. The services I am able to provide focus on supporting children as they begin their educational career, helping prepare them for future success, and transitioning from childhood into adolescents.
