Hello Bacon! My name is Rachel Eaton, and I am so excited to join the Bacon Community this year as your school counselor. This will be my twelfth year as a counselor in PSD. I spent nine years at Fossil Ridge High School and two years at Lesher Middle School. I have enjoyed working with fifth graders to support a smooth transition into middle school and realized that elementary students bring a lot of joy and laughter into my life. Getting to work in an elementary school is a dream come true!
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my three-year old daughter, my husband of twelve years, and our dog. Most weekends, we get outside to hike, paddle board, and go on bike rides. When I find a minute to myself, I fill it with reading and gardening.
Please think of me as your student’s professional problem solver - offering support for social skills, improving organization, managing emotions and anxiety, and anything else that may help your child ready themselves to learn. I am also your student’s cheerleader encouraging them to take risks, act on best intentions, demonstrate respect, and show everyone what being a Bacon Bulldog means.
I look forward to getting to know your student and to supporting social/emotional, academic, and career growth for all Bacon Bulldogs.
Sincerely, Rachel Eaton, M.Ed.
