Bellefontaine City Schools is spotlighting its counselors during National School Counseling Week (February 6th-10th).

BCS school counselors play a vital role in the education of our students.

Counselors are certified/licensed educators with advanced training who help students succeed by providing many services, including social emotional learning, academic strategies, and goal setting. Counselors also collaborate with families, teachers, and community agencies, mediate conflicts, assist with college, job, and scholarship applications, and even offer short-term counseling.

Bellefontaine City Schools is fortunate to have committed and experienced counselors.

BCS salutes counselors Lindsey Maus, Eric Hamm, Julie Kurtz, Shawn Congleton, Rebecca O’Rielley, Shalie Logan, Paula Shaw, and Beth Ramsey.

Today, we’re celebrating the work of Beth Ramsey.

Name: Beth Ramsey

Title: Mental Health Therapist

Years of experience: This is my first year with BCS. I’ve been a therapist in the Bellefontaine community for over 23 years. Prior to moving to Ohio, I was a school social worker for Alton School District, Alton, Illinois.

Why you enjoy working at BCS: I truly enjoy the school setting for working with youth. I learn so much from kids, and I’m pleased to be able to help them build better skills and solve challenges they are facing. I’m so pleased BCS opted to invest in the mental health of the students we serve. I’m honored to be here.

What you love doing outside of school: My husband and I have a small hobby farm with sheep, pigs, and chickens. I’m the caretaker of the chickens. I enjoy camping, hiking, birdwatching, reading, yoga, riding my motorcycle, and watching sports. HUGE baseball fan! Currently, I’m also enjoying watching my two young adult children in their new careers.
