School Counselor

My name is Leslie Hall, and I am the School Counselor for MES.  I taught 4th grade for twenty years before moving to the counseling position in 2010.  I have spent this entire time at Middleton Elementary School.

    My personal goal as a school counselor is to provide a warm and safe environment where each person can learn to love who they are, and to facilitate those coping skills needed for everyday life.  Each day is a new day.  We want our students to know that we care about them as a person and that they are valued. 

     I welcome any questions or concerns that our parents have and can be reached at 376-0160 or
