Welcome from our counselor!
I am ecstatic to see all of our Inman children and their families. This is my 28th year in education. My husband, Chris, works for Delta and has a home inspection business. My daughter, Presley, attends Georgia Southern. I have three step-children, Ashley, Kassi and Jake. We have three grandchildren; Addy, Mason and our newest addition, Amelia. I enjoy adventures; such as, mud runs, caving, sky diving, riding 4-wheelers and exploring the outdoors. I am looking forward to working with you and your children.

As part of Inman Elementary School's development guidance program, we offer students the opportunity to work in small groups on various area of development. Children who share a common concern meet together with the counselor to talk and share. All groups are confidential. No information will be shared with parent unless the child states that they will cause harm to self or others. Students are considered for group participation based on teacher/administrator recommendations and parent request. Groups meet during the school day. Small group permission forms will go out the end of August to students who we currently have on a list. If you are interested in your child participating in a group or you did not receive a form, please e-mail Kristen Bogumill or Leslie Kollasch at: bogumill.kristen@mail.

PBIS stands for positive behavior, intervention, & supports.
PBIS is a program designed to teach respect, responsibility, and ready traits at school. At Inman Elementary School, we hope to encourage students to continuously make good behavioral choices by implementing this program.
PBIS provides teachers and other school staff with information to help prevent behavior problems and to help make school a safe learning environment.
PBIS, A RESEARCED- BASED PROGRAM, CAN RESULT IN:
Increased time for instruction
An increase in positive behavior school- wide
A decrease in disruptive behaviors
HOW CAN PARENTS HELP?
Parents can help by reading and discussing the behavior expectations on a regular basis.
Require your child to speak respectfully to others, especially adults.
If your child has a problem in school discuss with them the behavior expectations and possible solutions.
Support teacher & administrative behavior decisions. Discuss issues privately.
Join Inman Elementary at the Community Circle celebrations to help recognize positive behavior.
