Ms. Brianna Williams
Hello my lovely OES Family!! I am Ms. Williams and I am one of the awesome school counselors. I started at OES as a School Counseling intern in January 2014 and then became the School Counselor in March. Before becoming a school counselor, I was a high school Chemistry teacher at Eastern Guildford High School in Greensboro, NC for 2 years. I built great rapport with my students and they relied on me to work through their feelings, issues (no matter how big or small), and to help them schedule classes. It was then that I realized that I needed to become a school counselor. To this day, I still have the same passion to help all students work through any feelings or 'problems' they are experiencing.
Since I've been at OES, I've taught many Classroom Guidance lessons to all grade levels ranging from feelings to bullying to careers. I've also conducted small groups, planned and held a Career Day, helped with Marine Corp. Toys for Tots campaign, helped organize Make A Child Smile for OES, planned and organized food drives, among many other things.
I am looking forward to the 2020-2021 school year though I know it will be very different. I'm looking forward to working with students, their families, and the community.
