Kerry Stamps, Counselor
I am so excited to work with the students at Bennett Elementary for 2022-2023 school year as the new counselor!
I am starting my 24th year in education formerly as a teacher and most recently as a counselor. I graduated from Texas Tech with a degree in Early Childhood Education and began teaching in Lubbock in 1998. After 21 years in the classroom, I decided I wanted to help my students in a different way and went back to school to become a school counselor. After a few years in middle school as a counselor, I decided Elementary is my favorite place. I am married to my best friend, Everett, and we have 3 sons. I look forward to getting to know all the students at Bennett Elementary.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can help with any social or emotional needs your child may have. You can reach me by phone or email: 806-696-6771 or [email protected]
