• HelloFromYourSchoolCounselor (Click here to play a special video from me to you.)

    A warm WELCOME to students and parents at Roberts Elementary School.  My name is Mary Beth Dockery, and I am excited to begin my 16th year as your School Counselor.  I work with all students (Kindergarten through 5th grade), providing them with academic, personal/social, and career skills.  These areas are addressed through classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, individual sessions, crisis intervention, and consultation with parents, teachers, and community advocates.   

    My journey of becoming a School Counselor was years in the making.  I graudated in 1986 with a Master of Arts degree in International Relations from the University of Southern California.  After working for a number of years in various occupations, I finally decided to pursue my true passion - counseling children.  As a result, I enrolled at Georgia State University and graduated in 1999 with an M.Ed in School Counseling.  I worked for four years in Buford City Schools before transferring to Paulding County School District in 2003.    

    I consider it a privilege to partner with you in preparing our students to become responsible and productive members of society.  Please don't hesitate to seek my assistance when faced with issues and challenges.  I'm here to serve.

    Mary Beth Dockery, Counselor
