My name is Mary Kristin Green.
I am currently working towards my Master's in School Counseling at Lipscomb University in Nashville with the plan of graduating in May 2021. This is my first year as a school counselor, and I am so happy to be at Baker Elementary. I am proud to be a Bulldog!
Why school counseling?
I have always known I wanted to work in an elementary school. I love learning about childhood development and social-emotional growth, so school counseling seemed like a perfect fit! I enjoy getting to work with teachers and parents to better support their students as they grow.
When deciding on a career, it was important to find a field that also would allow me to grow alongside my students. I believe this is the perfect position for me because I believe in being a life-long learner, and my students teach me something every single day! I am currently continuing my education through Lipscomb University, and I am excited to get to put some of my new learning to use.

Alone we are smart. Together we are brilliant
School counselors offer a unique perspective to the school environment. We are supporters of students, teachers, parents and administrators. We serve in many unique roles within schools with the goal of helping every student reach their potential. We serve as advocators, mentors, academic advisors and confidants to students.
