Kellian Hanks, middle school guidance counselor

Q: Where did you go to college?

A: I got my bachelor’s degree from Harris Stowe State University, and I got my degree from the University of Missouri St Louis.

Q: What were you doing before GCAA?

A: Last year I was a middle school counselor at another confluence academy school.

Q: What do you want people to know about you?

A- That I am a resource to help our students, also I’m (probably) one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I’m a good listener, I have a big heart, and I care about the students, their families and I also care about the staff that works here.

Q: What are your long term goals for your students?

A: To get them prepared for high school, especially the 6th graders. I’m trying to help them transition from elementary school because the elementary school model is very different. They have a lot more freedom. They can go to class by themselves, and they change classes all day vs being in one room all day.

Q: What are you looking forward to at GCAA?

A: I look forward to helping my middle school students, this is the first year I’ve ever worked with 6th grade. Last year I had the 7th and 8th grade at the previous school I was at. This is my first time being at a school for the arts so I’m excited to see my student’s talent with drawing, singing, dancing, acting, I’m excited to learn about the arts and see my students in action.

Q: What are some interesting things you find about your job?

A: I’m just learning every day. I’m still learning the building, trying to learn all my student’s names. I’m trying to learn the staff names as well.
