Brittany Collis

School Counselor K-12

Welcome to Mrs. Collis School Counseling page! I work with students from Kindergarten-12th grade. I have the joy of working with students through classroom guidance lessons (elementary level), small group counseling, and individual counseling. I also collaborate with school staff and parents in order to best meet the needs of students.

My plans are to make this page your one stop shop! Any information for college can be found here for students and parents.

My office hours are Monday,Wednesday, and Friday from 7:30-3:30 or you can reach me by email at bcollis@gatewoodschool.com.
