Greetings! I would like to take this time to introduce myself to you. My name is Angie Branton and I am your child’s school counselor.
Our guidance program is designed to address the needs of all student by helping them to be aware of their strengths, to learn how to solve their own problems, to adjust to their present environment, and to plan realistically for their future to realize their fullest potential.
Through classroom visits, small groups, and individual activities, the school counselor can help students improve their self-concept and peer relations. Parents, teachers, or administration may refer students if they feel there are concerns.
I look forward to working with your child or children here at Briggs.

My name is Amber Alvey and I am the School Based Therapist for Briggs Elementary School. I am so excited to be a new part of the Briggs family. I have my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mercer University and my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from East Tennessee State University.
My role as your child’s School Based Therapist is to provide psychotherapeutic services to students right here in school. The School Based Therapy program is an amazing program to help serve children right where they are. As the School Based Therapist, I work closely with the teachers and staff to help provide the most effective plan possible to serve your child’s needs.
I am excited to get share a small piece in your child’s journey here at Briggs.
