    Counselor Spotlight...

    Leslie Kollasch

    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. Kristen and I have known each other personally and professionally for over 12 years. We are looking forward to working with you and your children.

    Small Group

    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.fcboe.org or kollasch.leslie@mail.fcboe.org
