Hello! My name is Bonnie Barlow, and this is my 11th year as an elementary school counselor in Davis School District. I have been at Ellison Park Elementary since it opened in 2007, and I am excited to be at West Bountiful Elementary for my fourth year! 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 life-skills 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. Please contact me if you are interested in these services for your student. At Ellison Park I am also over the "Soar Higher" school wide positive behavior program, Eagles Club, Marvin and Jessie life skills assemblies, and am an advisor for the Student Council and Peace Builder Committee. I do the Marvin and Jessie program at West Bountiful as well; and I also help with the Student Council.

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 inquisitive 1 year old, Silas, and two cats. I enjoy many different hobbies that range from spinning records, reading, writing, gardening, and painting to snow boarding, 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!
