Hello!

My name is Mr. Buckley.  I am the School Counselor at Weigelstown Elementary School.  This is my 11th year here and I have enjoyed every year that I've been here.  In addition to my Weigelstown "family", I have a wife and two children - a 14-year-old son and a 16-year-old daughter,  They all keep me very busy when I am not at school!  I am originally from the Philadelphia area and I am a HUGE Eagles fan!!!

As the School Counselor, I do classroom, small group, and individual counseling with students. For classroom Guidance counseling, I teach 6 scheduled Guidance lessons per class, per grade level.  The lesson content consists of behavioral, social, emotional, academic, and career-related skills.  This is my favorite part of my job, because I get to see ALL of the students from every class at our school!  I also provide small group counseling, as needed, for students who need extra help with specific behavioral, social, and emotional issues.  Additionally, I provide individual counseling for students who are dealing with very specific or unique personal problems, such as personal crises, separation/divorce, death, etc.  If necessary, I can refer parents to outside counseling/therapy agencies, if their children have severe or chronic mental health problems. Please take a look at the Guidance lesson outline below to see what your child(ren) are learning about in Guidance class this school year. 

Please stop by my office, if you get a chance, or call or e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns about your child.

Thank you for visiting my web page and I look forward to talking to you and working with your child!

Let's have a GREAT school year!!!! :)

Sincerely,

Bryan Buckley - School Counselor
