Welcome to RMS. My name is Kelley McLendon, and I am the counselor for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Throughout the school year I will be working with students on academic advisement, career planning, and personal development. I have been a counselor with the Polk School District since 2007 and at Rockmart Middle School since 2011.
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from The University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!), a Master's degree in Counseling from The State University of West Georgia, and, finally, a Specialist's degree in School Counseling from The University of West Georgia.
It is my goal to assist each RMS student in college and career planning to help prepare them for the next stage of life. I believe that it is important to work with each student's individual needs and strengths to help them to develop academically and socially in order to become a positive and productive citizen.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have about our counseling program. I look forward to a great year working with the students here at Rockmart Middle School.
