Greetings Lakeside Academy parents and guardians!

My name is Zena Hanner-Buckley, and I will serve as the school counselor at Lakeside Academy for the 2016-2017 school year. This is my 5th year as a school counselor, and I am excited about working with your students. This year at Lakeside Academy, I will use fairy tales to teach life skills, as fairy tales were designed to teach life lessons and they also help to expand students’ imaginations. Some of the topics we will explore are bullying, personal safety, decision making, and conflict resolution.

In addition to guidance lessons, I may also be working with your student in a small group setting or on an individual basis for a brief time. I will be collaborating with Lakeside administration, teachers, and other staff, but I am also looking forward to working closely with all of you in an effort to ensure your student has a successful school year.

If you need to contact me with any questions or concerns, I can be reached by phone at 423-855-2605 or via email at I will be happy to speak with you about your child’s academic or social progress. This will be a magical year!

Zena Hanner-Buckley
