School Counselor

Guidance Main Page Image

My name is Ellen Bergland and this is my fifth year serving as the School Counselor at New Hope Elementary.  I am in my 23nd year in education in North Carolina Public Schools, having worked in schools in Bladen County, Wake County and Nash-Rocky Mount before coming to Wilson County School System.  I love my job and look forward to another great year at New Hope.

My office is located across from the fifth grade classrooms.  My goal as a school counselor is to support students' academic success and to enhance their learning as they move to be college and career ready.  I work with students individually, in small groups, in their classrooms, and within grade levels as I meet monthly with our Town Meetings.  

I also collaborate and meet with parents and teachers to help assure our students' academic and social needs are being met.  I am the staff person who helps develop 504 Plans for students. I also serve on the Intervention Team and the PBIS Team. Please feel free to contact me through the New Hope main number, or email me at ellen.bergland@wilsonschoolsnc.net.

During the 2017-18 School Year, I will be supervising a Counselor Intern,  Ms. Langley Kelly.  Langley is a Meredith College graduate and is in graduate school at East Carolina University.   She will be at New Hope most afternoons this year, interacting with students, staff and parents.  I hope you will take some time to meet her!
