|Hello! My name is Bonnie Barlow, and I am starting my 9th year as an elementary school counselor in Davis School District. I have been part-time at Ellison Park Elementary since it opened in 2007, and I was at East Layton Elementary from 2007-2014. I am excited to start my second year at West Bountiful Elementary! If you have not had experience working with an elementary school counselor before, you may not know what I do. A few of the ways I am lucky to be able to support and work with students at Ellison Park and West Bountiful, is through classroom character education lessons and small group and individual sessions. I work with students individually and in small group for a large variety of issues; ranging from friendship skills and classroom behavior, to issues such as anxiety and divorce. At Ellison Park I am also over the "Soar Higher" school wide positive behavior program, Marvin and Jessie life skills assemblies, and am an advisor for the Student Council and Peace Builder Committee. I also do the Marvin and Jessie program at West Bountiful, and even have the 6th graders present to our 1st graders!

Other than being fortunate enough to do a job that I love, here are a few other things about me. I have lived in Utah my entire life, and went to school in Davis County. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Weber State University, and a Masters of Science degree in Psychology with Certification in School Counseling from Utah State University. I LOVE to learn! In May 2004 I married my high school sweetheart, and we now reside in Bountiful with our two cats Bowser and Squint. I enjoy many different hobbies that range from reading, writing, gardening, and painting to snow boarding, rock climbing, backpacking, and world travel!
I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to serve in education and I look forward to working with you and your students this year!
