Dr.  Yolanda Colbert
School Counselor

Dear Parents,

My name is Yolanda Colbert and this is my 11th year as a school counselor at Tara Elementary School. Prior to becoming a school counselor, I taught fourth and fifth grades. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Social Science from Kansas State University, my Master of Science degree in Agency Counseling from Troy State University, and my Doctorate of Education in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University.

 I am blessed with a wonderful husband and daughter, and a lot of extended family members. I cherish every moment that I am able to spend with them. My favorite place to be is outside on the porch, on a breezy day.

I believe that every child should set goals, and work hard to achieve them.

My desire as a school counselor is to work with the families, community members, and staff of Tara Elementary to ensure the success of all our students.

If you have any questions regarding our school counseling program or if you need assistance please feel free to call me at (770)968-2916. I can be reached by e-mail at yolanda.colbert@clayton.k12.ga.us.

I am looking forward to another outstanding year!

Your School Counselor,

Dr. Yolanda Colbert
