Mrs. Donna Hensley
I am Donna Hensley, and I have enjoyed serving students and families in multiple areas of education over the years. Whether working in the role of a teacher, leader, or counselor, I have always sought to be a person of influence and to make a positive difference. As a school counselor, I work with students to maneuver past obstacles that interfere with learning. I enjoy walking alongside classroom teachers to support learning as well as working with parents in supporting school efforts and assisting them in promoting appropriate, respectful, responsible behavior in their children.
After teaching students in grades K, 1, 2, 4, and 5, I moved into an elementary school counselor role. In 2011, I moved into my current counseling position at Sawtooth Middle School. It has been my pleasure to work with several groups of students from when they entered Sawtooth as 6th grade students through when they finished up and left our school ready for 9th grade.
My educational background includes earning the following: a B.A. in Elementary Education, an M.Ed in School Counseling, and an Ed.S in Educational Leadership. I am also licensed by the state of Idaho as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
It is my pleasure to serve our students, families, and staff members at Sawtooth Middle School. My goal is to provide a safe environment for each child to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Please contact me with questions and/or concerns. I am available by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and by phone: 208-855-4211 (direct line).
