    Meet your School Counselors!

    Mrs. Carducci

    Hi! My name is Sherry Carducci and I love serving our students and families as the School Counselor at Bethel Manor Elementary. I work alongside teachers and families to support student development- academically, socially, and emotionally. I believe that children learn best when they feel good about themselves and know that they are supported by their schools, families, and communities. We strive to promote that supportive and kind environment at BMES. 
    I look forward to getting to know you! Feel free to reach out via email scarducci@ycsd.york.va.us. 

    Mrs. Collazo- Gonzalez (Mrs. C.G.) 

    My name is Carie S. Collazo- Gonzalez and I am lucky to be a part of the York County School Division. I am split with Bethel Manor Elementary and Tabb Elementary Schools.  I have my Master's in Psychology and School Counseling. I am also a licensed instructor for Youth Mental Health First Aid. I primarily work with our third and fourth grade students. Please contact me with any questions or suggestions you might have at ccollazogonzalez@ycsd.york.va.us.

    Individual Check-InsSchool counselors provide individual check-ins with students virtually.  Referrals to community resources will be provided for students needing long-term counseling services. Students may speak with the counselor individually through parent referral, teacher referral, or self-referral. Check in topics might include:

    • Academic concerns
    • Family changes or concerns

    Referrals - If you are in need of assistance, your school counselors can help by locating community resources or referrals for long-term counseling services.
