Amy McNair Wheaton

My name is Amy McNair Wheaton, and I am a counselor at Foley Elementary School. I most work with the 3rd and 4th grades.  I am an itinerant counselor which means I work at more than one school.   This is my 6th year as a school counselor.  Before that, I was a teacher for 27 years.  Twenty of those years were spent at Foley Intermediate School as a 5th grade teacher.  Because I have worked in the Foley schools for almost three decades, I have a deep love for the children of Foley.  


I am married to Mike Wheaton.  He works at Century Link.  We have one son, Taylor. Taylor graduated from Auburn Montgomery with a degree in Economics.  We are all graduates of Foley High School.  We also have 3 dogs, Ollie, Sissy, and Rawley.  They don't realize they are dogs, though, because they are so spoiled!  In my free time I like to read, exercise, go to the beach, and spend time with my family.


As a school counselor, I serve as an advocate for your child.  I work with the student, parents, and school staff to ensure both academic and emotional success for the student.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have a concern or need assistance.  The best way to contact me is via email (  You can also call (943-8861) and leave a message.  I will return your call as soon as possible.
