Kelley Hendricks, M.Ed., NCC
My name is Kelley Hendricks, and I am the 7th grade (L-Z) and 8th grade School Counselor at Leeds Middle School! My role is to work with the LMS staff, parents, and the community, to create a safe and supportive school environment in which all students can achieve academic success. I am here to help our students attain optimal personal growth, acquire positive social skills, set appropriate and achievable career goals, and most importantly, to realize their full potential!
I strive to devote most of my time to personal interactions with our students in order to address their academic, career, and personal/social developmental needs. This is done through individual counseling, group counseling, and/or classroom guidance lessons, otherwise known as “Talk-it-Out”. Topics of discussion may include, but are not limited to: bullying, study skills, high school transition, college/career exploration, stress management, conflict resolution, diversity and tolerance, substance-use/abuse prevention, responsible behavior, and/or character education.
look forward to working with you and your student this school year!! If you have any
questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at any time!!!

Help LMS students Spread the Word to End the Word™. We have joined an on-going campaign to stop the use of the R-word and to pledge #Respect for everyone. Over 650,000 people have pledged their support online since the campaign launched in 2009. Together we can create communities of acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Visit www.r-word.org and take the pledge to end the use of the R-word.
