Mrs. Amanda Hassell
Hello! My name is Amanda Hassell and I am the school counselor at Graham A. Barden Elementary School. I am excited for a new year and ready for new learning to take place in the lives of our students, staff, parents and community. I truly enjoy my job and am eager to help students and families feel confident and successful during their educational experience at G.A.B. Prior to becoming a school counselor, I was a kindergarten teacher for eleven years. I feel my wealth of experience in the classroom has prepared me to help all stakeholders that I work with. My husband and I along with our two boys live in Morehead City where we enjoy our time on the crystal coast. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach, traveling and cooking!
