Middle School Counselor - Heatherlee Ryals
A Note from the Counselor
My name is Heatherlee Ryals and I am the new middle school guidance counselor. Because I am new to the school district, I would like to share a little bit about my background and formally express my excitement for the upcoming school year.
I was raised and grew up in northern Mo, in a town called Unionville. Once I graduated high school, I moved to Columbia, Mo, where I attended Stephens College. I graduated Stephens College with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and I received my masters degree in School Counseling from Stephens College as well.
Once I completed my masters degree in 2012, I signed a contract with Slater School District in Slater, Missouri as the preK-8th grade school counselor.
I worked at Slater School District as their counselor for two years. In June of 2013, my husband Jeff and I got married and in February 2014, our son, Holden surprised us three weeks early by being born.
After my son was born, my husband and I decided that it would be best to move closer to his work because we were both commuting quite a distance to our jobs. After careful consideration and a lot of looking, we bought a house and moved to Odessa, Missouri this summer.
The last few years have been very busy to say the least but I am ready to start a new beginning in a new town and at a new school district!
