Nuttall Middle School Guidance

 Who is the school counselor?

Hello! My name is Amber Wellum and I am the school counselor.  

As a school counselor, my job is to ensure that each student gets the best education and environment to learn. I work with all teachers and staff to help provide a safe school for students to achieve their goals. In addition, I work individually with students to help with study skills, relationship issues, and any other stressor that may affect their ability to achieve academic success.

If ever there is a concern, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school. I value your feelings, thoughts, and opinions and your academic progress is important to me.

Thank You!

NMS is centered around the student!

Fortunately, NMS faculty and staff are well trained and highly skilled in working with middle school-age students. We recognize the student's excitement for more freedom and the need of comfort and predictability.  Each student is an individual and NMS strives for student success.
