• Hi, my name is Dana Welch.  I’m happy to introduce myself as one of the counselors at Henderson Middle School this year!

    I grew up in Clayton County and graduated from Morrow High School.  After high school, I attended the University of West Georgia where I received my degree in Early Childhood Education.  My first job was teaching 3rd grade and EIP Reading at Hawthorne Elementary.  After teaching a few years, I decided to go back to school (University of West Georgia, again) to pursue my degree in Counseling.  Upon graduation, I became a mental health counselor at Trinity Counseling Center and obtained state licensure as an LPC.

    I am happy to be back to my roots in education.  I’ve spent the past two years working with the Griffin-Spalding school district as a mental health consultant and now I have the privilege of working with the amazing people of Butts County!

    Beyond the role of school counselor, I have been happily married for 23 years and I have 4 children, ages 19, 17, 13 and 4.  I enjoy traveling, shopping, reading and theater.  

    I am thrilled to be joining the AMBUSH at HMS! 

     

    Please do not hesitate to contact me for assistance.
